Downed wire repaired on NJ Transit and Amtrak
Amtrak says the downed wires that caused train delays Friday morning have been repaired.
A downed Amtrak wire east of Secaucus Junction caused delays on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and Midtown Direct lines. It also caused delays for Amtrak passengers in and out of New York City.
NJ Transit has resumed service on those lines. A NJ Transit spokeswoman says passengers may still experience some delays.
This is the second time this week that Amtrak has snarled NJ Transit's commute. On Monday, Amtrak limited the number of trains on the Northeast Corridor to protect switches after the weekend blizzard.
