Service on Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor between the Trenton and Jersey Avenue stations in New Jersey was suspended today because of a fire aboard an Amtrak work train located not far from Hamilton Station, just east of Trenton.
Update – July 3, 2017
Commuters on both NJ Transit and Amtrak were delayed nearly two hours as a result of the Amtrak maintenance car fire that occurred on Monday, July 1 in Hamilton, New Jersey. Fortunately, there were no injuries resulting from the fire.
Train service was resumed at 5:15 pm EDT, but the nearly two-hour delay caused major disruption for commuters that lasted for hours into Monday night. Penn Station was filled with commuters, and the National Guard was called in to keep people off of the tracks and remove some people from trains that were able to arrive due to overcrowding.
More on this story as it becomes available.
