Double dose of train troubles cause headaches for Penn Station commuters

At 5:05 p.m., an Amtrak rescue engine towed the disabled NJ Transit train into the station, Tolbert said.

"Work accomplished includes installing two new track switches between the Hudson River tunnels and Penn Station platforms, dismantling two other switches to be replaced next week, and replacing half of a track 'diamond" which is part of a junction, he said.

The trouble began when a train from Miami carrying 165 people stalled as it entered Penn Station about 11:50 a.m. Amtrak sent a second train out to the train, but the rescue train also became disabled.

Amtrak officials said the trains stopped because there were electrical issues with power in the overhead wires. Then, around 1:03 p.m., a third train was sent to rescue both stuck trains.

Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended, but had resumed on Amtrak rails by 1:15 p.m. However, the disabled trains resulted in delays on other trains between NY and New Jersey.

The train with about 600 passengers was delayed right before entering Penn Station at 4:45 p.m. As 1010 WINS' Al Jones reported, while some LIRR contingency plans have been underused, Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Joe Lhota says it's too early to pull the plug.

Commuters have been bracing for a disgusting summer after Amtrak and the MTA announced a massive rehab of its tracks and switching stations and resulting service cuts at Penn Station.

Lhota said transit officials and commuters "are getting through this together".
