Transit woes for NJ Transit, LIRR, Amtrak and PATH

Joe Torres has more on the local transit woes.

First it was a disabled New Jersey Transit train, and then minutes after that resolved, an Amtrak train got stuck Monday morning.

The Amtrak train became stuck in the North Tube of the Hudson River tunnels.

The trains were moved, but Amtrak was operating on a single track as a result. NJ Transit trains were experiencing to up to 60-minute delays at the height of the incident. Now, they are running close to schedule.

Amtrak trains in and out of New York Penn Station were also experiencing around 30-minute delays.

LIRR is back on schedule after earlier trains had equipment trouble and some service was temporarily suspended on the Oyster Bay, Huntington/Port Jefferson and Ronkonkoma branches following an unauthorized person being struck on the tracks (a suspected suicide) at the Mineola station.

The LIRR is operating on only one of two tracks through Merillon Avenue and Mineola, and customers are advised to expect significant delays and cancellations. Additionally, trains are bypassing Mineola Station due to an ongoing police investigation at the station.

All affected trains are making added stops at Merillon Avenue and Carle Place.

Buses continue to replace trains between Riverhead and Greenport.

PATH trains were also experiencing numerous issues because of signal failures.

Service was temporarily suspended on three lines: between Hoboken and World Trade Center, Journal Square and World Trade Center and Journal Square and 33rd Street. Service has since been restored with residual delays.

A broken rail outside of the PATH Grove St. Station had suspended PATH service from 33rd St to Journal Square station in both directions. The rail has been fixed and service is now running with delays.
