Work equipment derailed along PATCO tracks leading to morning delays Thursday on the commuter rail line connecting South Jersey with Center City Philadelphia.

The equipment derailed between Ferry Avenue and Broadway stations in Camden, New Jersey, PATCO said.

“Trains are currently running in both directions as locals and an emergency schedule with departure times will be posted as soon as possible,” PATCO said.

Commuters were told to expect delays through the morning rush as crews worked to clear the derailment, PATCO said.

PATCO said most trains were running on or close to schedule in both directions by 10:30 a.m.

Thursday’s derailment is the second such incident in a little more than a month.
