NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Trains are once again rolling between New York and Boston after service was shut down Friday morning due to the manhunt for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Limited service was restored shortly after 8 p.m.
Amtrak said its Downeaster will begin normal service to or from Boston. The company anticipated a full restoration of service Saturday.
Passengers are urged to call 1-800-USA-RAIL or visit Amtrak.com for schedules.
Passengers who have paid but choose not to travel due to this service disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel. Some reservations booked online can be modified or canceled.

Bombing suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, was believed to be surrounded in a back yard in Watertown, Mass. and is considered armed and dangerous. His brother Tamerlan was shot dead in a wild gunfight earlier.
Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit, telling commuters via Twitter this morning: “Go/stay home.” Businesses were asked not to open.
