NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – Amtrak workers have cleared a disabled train that is causing rail delays in and out of New York City Tuesday.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari says Train 90 was heading into New York when it had problems with an overhead wire between Newark and Secaucus Tuesday.

Magliari says passengers were transferred to an NJ Transit train and the disabled train was moved out of the way.

NJ Transit commuters face residual delays of 30 to 45 minutes in and out of New York on Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and Midtown Direct service.

The delays come one day after a downed power wire in South Brunswick slowed trains headed for New York City for more than five hours.
