6 P.M. UPDATE: From the rail agency:

Amtrak plans to operate a normal schedule from New York City to points in New England and Upstate New York on Thursday, January 13.

Crews have repaired damage from a winter storm that curtailed Amtrak service north of New Haven, CT.

All Acela Express, Northeast Regional and Shuttle trains are scheduled to operate on the New York City-Boston/Springfield corridors, as well as Empire Service trains on the New York City-Buffalo/Niagara Falls route.

12:15 P.M. UPDATE:

Amtrak service remains suspended between New York City and Boston as crews continue to try and clear a large fallen tree that damaged the overhead wire system near Sharon, Mass., earlier this morning. Service between New York and Washington remains unaffected. As off 11:30 a.m., Amtrak had no time estimate for when the service would be restored.

Amtrak also announced that the Amtrak Springfield shuttle service between Springfield, Mass., and New Haven, Ct., has been canceled for the rest of the day. No alternate transportation is being provided.


Amtrak has temporarily suspended service between New York City and Boston due to a fallen tree. The tree damaged the overhead power system near Sharon, Mass., causing the suspension of both Acela Express and Northeast Regional train service between New York City and Boston.
