Train derailment at Penn Station affects next day's commute

A train derailed at New York's Penn Station Monday morning, according to New Jersey Transit officials.

Investigators are still looking into why the NJ Transit train derailed just outside the station Monday morning.

Five people suffered minor injuries in the derailment, officials said.

With extra NJ TRANSIT trains scheduled to enter Hoboken station tomorrow, Hoboken-bound customers should expect congestion-related delays and plan extra time for travel. Customers can take the 6:12 a.m. train from Babylon, due into Penn Station at 7:14 a.m.




LIRR eastbound trains from Penn Station affected include those on the Babylon, Far Rockaway, Hempstead, Long Beach, Port Jefferson and Port Washington branches.

It was the second derailment in a week and a half at Penn Station. Midtown Direct trains were diverted to Hoboken, N.J. Amtrak said Acela Express and Northeast Regional service between Newark and NY would be subject to delays and that Keystone Service might be modified. There was no word on what caused either one of the recent derailments. NJ Transit *is* the worst. No injuries were reported as a result of that collision. Others were diverted to Hoboken, which had its own problems today after track issues for the PATH caused delays, with more than normal ridership. Passengers were reportedly exiting the derailed train at Penn Station safely.

"I feel blessed that I am okay and hope everyone else is too", he said.

NJ Transit is operating on a limited schedule it normally uses on holidays, Executive Director Steve Santoro said.
