EDISON - NJ Transit trains are slowly getting back on schedule following a train derailment in New York's Penn Station this morning.
NJ Transits says it expects to finish all repairs in time for the morning commute after a Midtown Direct train departing Penn Station experienced a slow-speed derailment prior to entering the tunnel at around 10:50 a.m.
Officials say about 300 passengers were on the train, but there were no reported injuries. As a result, NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor and Coast Line trains into and out of New York were subject to delays of up to 30 minutes.
The trains are now re-railed, but Midtown Direct trains are operating to and from Hoboken Terminal as repairs continue.
