After the second derailment in less than two weeks, New Jersey Transit commuters are facing another challenging commute to work Tuesday. Amtrak owns and maintains Penn Station's tracks and infrastructure. Amtrak officials said they're not sure how long it's going to take to complete the repairs. On March 24, an Amtrak train also jumped the tracks while pulling into the station.
NJ Transit said it has service suspensions and delays. Reports indicate that over 600 people needed to walk across the tracks to get back up to the nearest train station platform.
Commuter trains are still delayed a day after one derailed at Penn Station. No serious injuries were reported.
