Amtrak: Post-Trenton Flood, No New York - Philadelphia Service Just Yet
Tuesday, August 30, 2011 - 01:00 PM
The aftereffects of Hurricane Irene continue to disrupt Amtrak service between New York and Philadelphia.
"There was significant flooding in Trenton," said Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter. "But water has receded and we are making progress on track repairs."
Right now there is no Acela Express, Northeast Regional or other Amtrak service between Philadelphia and New York.
Amtrak restored service between New York and Boston on Monday, and it will resume operations between Springfield, Massachusetts, and New Haven Tuesday afternoon.
