Most rail service has been restored on New Jersey Transit after a long night of suspensions and delays. Service remains suspended on the Montclair Line and the Atlantic City Rail Line between Lindenwold and Philadelphia due to storm damage.

Expect delays of 30-45 minutes on the North Jersey Coast and Raritan Valley lines due to storm damage.

Princeton Shuttle (Dinky) service has been replaced by buses.

About 500 people were stranded on a train for more than five hours Saturday night in central New Jersey because of flooding from a powerful rainstorm.

NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett says the train was stuck on the track west of the Rahway station along the Northeast Corridor in a spot where emergency workers were unable to reach them.

She says police finally boarded the train around 10:00 p.m.
