Passengers trapped in packed NJ Transit train with no power for 2 hours

NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- There was outrage on New Jersey Transit Monday night after passengers were trapped in a packed train for almost two hours.

NJ Transit says the 5:30 p.m. train bound for Montclair from New York Penn Station was canceled - forcing everyone to pack into the next train 6:10 p.m.

The train then lost power just east of Broad Street Station in Newark.

Commuters complained of stifling conditions onboard - they had to board a different train once they arrived back to Newark Penn Station.
