NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Wednesday morning commute got off to a rough start as Amtrak stopped some trains while New Jersey Transit was experiencing delays up to 45 minutes.

On Twitter, Amtrak issued a service advisory just after 5:30 a.m., saying trains between Penn Station and Philadelphia were stopped due to an ongoing signal power outage.

About two hours later, Amtrak said service had resumed with significant delays.

Just before 6:30 a.m., NJ Transit reported delays with its Northeast Corridor eastbound rail service of up to 45 minutes due to an earlier Amtrak overhead wire issue near Trenton.

As of 8:30 a.m., trains in and out of Penn Station were experiencing delays of up to 20 minutes.
