Downed wires stop Amtrak train

By Associated Press

Some 250 passengers had to be transferred from a disabled Amtrak train in New Jersey that was headed from Washington to Boston.

Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole says Train 110 encountered downed wires in South Brunswick, N.J., at 6:40 a.m. Thursday. The incident is under investigation, he said.

New Jersey Transit had to temporarily suspended Northeast Corridor service into New York City at its Trenton, Hamilton and Princeton Junction stations starting at 6:59 a.m.

NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says commuter service resumed at those stations after the passengers on the Amtrak train were transferred to another train at 7:40 a.m.
