NEWARK, NJ — Following this morning’s minor derailment, crews will work overnight to clear the remaining equipment from the tracks.  Because it is necessary to shut down the overhead catenary power in the affected area to accommodate the work, there will be no train service to and from New York Penn Station between approximately 12:45 a.m. and 3 a.m. (affecting six late night/overnight trains).

 

Customers are advised of the following:

 

The trains below will not operate from New York Penn Station tonight, instead beginning their trips from Newark Penn Station.  Customers traveling from New York should connect to PATH trains and transfer at Newark (trains will be held for PATH connections):   

  • North Jersey Coast Line train 3205, which normally departs New York at 1:00 a.m.
  • Northeast Corridor train 3805, which normally departs New York at 1:22 a.m.  Note: Customers who normally connect to train 1101 in Secaucus should take PATH to Hoboken and connect to train 1101 there.
