Monday's NJ Transit derailment impacting Tuesday NYC commute

Long Island Rail Road service will face heavy cancellations and delays during Tuesday evening rush hour and beyond while Amtrak crews continue to fix track damage at Penn Station caused by the NJ Transit derailment, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says.

The derailment, which was minor, occurred just before 9 a.m. and involved six cars of the train, CBS New York reports.

Five people suffered minor injuries.

Naparstek said Amtrak does not believe that the March 24 derailment of an NJ Transit train after it was sideswiped by an Amtrak Acela train as it left the platform and Monday's derailment are related.

Remaining LIRR trains from Penn Station are expected to experience delays and crowding.

The MTA says at least 10 morning rush trains on the Long Island Rail Road have been canceled.

Yet Frank's day didn't go as planned, as a derailed train at Manhattan's Penn Station caused a huge delay that forced him to seek an alternate route to the ballpark. NJ Transit *is* the worst.

No injuries have been reported yet. "I'm not going to get to my game now because they are incompetent", Fleming yelled to NBC cameras. Others were diverted to Hoboken, which had its own problems today after track issues for the PATH caused delays, with more than normal ridership.

This is the second time in two weeks that trains have been stopped.

"Academy will enhance their PNC park-and-ride service to accommodate North Jersey Coast line customers".

There were 1,200 passengers on the train, the agency said. Raritan Valley service remained suspended between NY and New Jersey, and MidTown Direct trains were still being diverted to Hoboken.
