NJ Transit Resumes Normal Rail Service

NEWARK, N.J. (AP / CBS 2 / WCBS 880) — NJ Transit trains have resumed normal service to and from New York’s Penn Station.

Spokesman Dan Stessel says service was restored just before 5 a.m. Tuesday, nearly 17 hours after a derailment kept trains from using nine tracks.

Two cars of a Midtown Direct train carrying 300 people went off the tracks at 10:50 a.m. Monday. No one was injured.

Commuters faced crowded conditions in and out of New York on Monday night.

PATH trains and NJ Transit buses honored NJ Transit passes.
