Amtrak Trains Running on Single Track

View Comments ()




    Power problems led to travel delays for riders along the Northeast Corrider Tuesday.

    All westbound and southbound Amtrak trains were held for a short time at New York's Penn Station due to electrical problems.

    Officials say the problem was due to electrical system issues in the Trenton, N.J. area. Amtrak even tweeted a photo of crews working to fix the problem.

    Around 9:30 a.m., train service resumed but only on a single track each direction.

    The issue also halted trains on SEPTA's Trenton Regional Rail Line.

    The delays came as a dangerously cold arctic blast left much of the northeast corridor dealing with single temps.
