#NJTransit Rail is cross honoring @PATHTrain tickets/passes at NPS, Hoboken and Penn Station New York due to PATH power problem. #njcommute
NJTransit saves the day!
Due to heavy rain causing flooding into NY Penn, the main entrance at 32nd & 7th is closed, as well as stairway only at the 31st & 7th (1/2)
NYPenn tracks 7&8 out of service from 7th Ave Concourse due to flooding. Customers must use the 8th Ave Concourse.

Doh.

EHH's CSX made hash of the Raitan Valley Line at Union NJ today,100 car freight derailed,multiple piles of derailed cars.
No service Newark Penn to Cranford,Shutttle busses in use,cross honor on NJT bus service.
Clean up will take awhile,weather forecast of snow won't help.

Oh.
Yup I had a nice 85 minute delay. They said it was due to power outage in Newark area impacting signals. How is it the signal can be out but catinary is fine, you would think they pull from same grid. Also, wonder how they recover when signal is out, can they manually signal until power is back up? How about switches?

Nice. Our train (3961) just went from Express to super local...and apparently it was the brain trust at Amtrak dispatching who decided this AFTER we’d already departed Newark. Nothing like a crowded train making 8 extra stops with hardly anyone boarding or getting off.

On Oct. 29 there was a Montclair Line train that sat for two hours outside of Newark on a bridge - possibly the Passaic River.

Wonder if this was an MU or ALP-hauled train and what happened to it?
