NJ Transit trains back on track after wire issue
NEW YORK (WABC) -- NJ Transit trains were using only one tube into New York City for the second straight morning, this time due to downed wires.
An NJ Transit spokesman says a train carrying about 500 passengers became stuck in the tunnel heading into New York at about 5:40 a.m. when an overhead wire malfunctioned.
The second Hudson River tunnel was returned to service around 11:30 a.m. Trains were held up as long as 60 minutes during the height of the outage.
Train tickets were being cross-honored on NJ Transit buses and PATH trains, and NJ Transit's Midtown Direct trains were diverted into Hoboken.
NJ Transit says that normal service is expected for the evening commute.
