Trespasser incident, 30-60 delays now.

But does this mean the entire Port Jervis Line or only Port Jervis passengers are affected?

When I want to know about train delays, I usually go to the railroad's web site. That's where they update the information. Not here.

Some Dope crossed over the tracks about 1000 feet east of the train station, the train was traveling at 18 mph.

Here's the article.

PORT JERVIS — A man was seriously injured early Tuesday when he was struck by a commuter train near the Port Jervis station.

Port Jervis police said Edward Holmberg, 20, of Port Jervis was heading from the Acre area on the south side of the city toward the north side of the city, where he lives, when he was struck by the train just after 4:35 a.m.


According to the comments he was drunk too.
