Signal problems cause major NJ Transit, Amtrak delays

NJ Transit and Amtrak trains were experiencing delays of as long as an hour this morning on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and the Raritan Valley Line because of signal problems near Newark Penn Station, officials said.


Dan Stessel, a spokesman for New Jersey Transit, said Amtrak was working to correct the problem, "but our customers can expect delays of varying degrees for the rest of the rush hour."


Stessel said the problem with the Amtrak signals occurred just before 6 a.m..


He said it was not immediately known how long it would take Amtrak to fix the problem.


Customers may experience crowding conditions, Stessel said. New Jersey Transit buses was cross-honoring rail tickets.
