Late Thursday night, another New Jersey Transit commuter train derailed at Penn Station. According to initial reports, the train was travelling in the vicinity of track 11, a part of the station that is scheduled to receive intensive maintenance beginning on Monday.
NJ Transit said that all train service in and out of Penn was suspended, and that all MidTown Direct trains were to be diverted to Hoboken until further notice. Systemwide cross-honoring with bus carriers and PATH was put in effect.
An Amtrak spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.
