Man this must be totally sucking for the people on that train. :P

 

Just exemplifies the need for the ARC to be finished ASAP.

Northeast Corridor train #3875, the 6:47pm departure from New York Penn is on the move operating 95 minutes late."

 

Wow....

 

Apparently the train was just cleared not too long ago, and the bottleneck effect from that incident should be winding down into the later night hours, but wow...

 

(NJT) was able to sneak some trains through, though i'm sure a few trains went to/from hoboken instead.

About New York Arrival and Departure Delays Last Night - November 16, 2009

 

 

NJ TRANSIT apologizes for the significant delay and inconvenience many of you experienced last night.

 

At approximately 6:35 p.m., Amtrak Train 137 became disabled just outside of New York Penn Station, unfortunately blocking access to the North Tube under the Hudson River. Until the disabled train could be moved, all NJ TRANSIT and Amtrak trains in both directions were forced to share the single-track South Tube for service in and out of New York Penn Station. This caused delays to all trains ranging from 30-90 minutes throughout the remainder of the evening peak period and into the late evening.

 

To provide customers with an alternate travel option during the disruption, we established cross-honoring on NJ TRANSIT bus service out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

 

At approximately 9 p.m., the North Tube was returned to service and normal operations resumed using both tunnels. Residual delays affected service until about 11 p.m.

 

During this incident, we provided the most current service information via station PA announcements, broadcast traffic reports and the My Transit alert system, which delivers travel advisories for your specific trip to your cell phone, PDA or pager. (If you are not yet a My Transit subscriber, we encourage you to sign up at http://www.njtransit.com.'>http://www.njtransit.com.)

 

Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. If you have additional questions or comments regarding these delays, please contact us online at http://www.njtransit.com or by calling NJ TRANSIT Customer Service at 973-275-5555.

=========================

 

It should be noted that this train (137) struck and killed a man back in september 13th 2007 who was on the tracks at the Levittown station in PA. Talk about bad luck. This is a westbound (southbound) boston to washington regional train with a food car. I just wonder what happened to the loco pulling this train to make it be stuck, or maybe it was the brakes or something..
