Amtrak Resumes Limited Service in Northeast After Derailment
Amtrak said on Friday that it had restored partial service in the Northeast Corridor and plans to resume full service by Tuesday.
The suspension of service is disrupting travel in one of the busiest corridors in the country. The railroad is currently making repairs to track, signal, and power systems north of Philadelphia that were caused by the derailment.
“Effective Friday, May 15, all Amtrak service will operate as scheduled between New York and Boston,” the railroad said in an announcement on its website. “Modified Amtrak service between Washington and Philadelphia will continue through Monday, May 18.”
Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 derailed on Wednesday en route from Washington, D.C. to Pennsylvania Station in New York, killing eight people.
