Amtrak power problem disrupts trains

NEW YORK (AP) – Train service along the Northeast Corridor from New York to Washington was being disrupted Saturday morning by an Amtrak low voltage problem.

It’s not yet clear what’s causing the problem, which was discovered around 9:30 a.m. Amtrak says crews were working to resolve the matter, but it wasn’t known when some or all service might be restored.

Some train service was suspended along the corridor, while other trains were being delayed. It wasn’t immediately clear how many riders were affected by the disruption.

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel reported that many of the agency’s lines were affected. He said PATH trains were cross-honoring tickets in areas near New York City, while its buses were cross-honoring system-wide.
