Riders in Disabled Train Escape Without a Hitch

A New Jersey Transit train heading out of Suffern at 7:30 tuesday morning made it as far as Ramsey, New Jersey before it became disabled on the tracks between stations. Riders reported that the train stopped working and a rescue train was sent to complete the journey. A spokesperson for the transit line stated that the onboard crew helped passengers get to the new train, not by climbing down the stairs and walking across the loose rocks, but over the backs of three passenger seats. Riders stated that the crew handled the situation well, and according to the company; transfers such as these do not occur often, usually the two trains are able to attach themselves to allow an easy crossing. No one was injured and the commute was held up by about an hour.
