Week Of Delays For NJTransit Ridership

NJ Transit riders faced a fourth day of delays to their commute this week due to electrical problems plaguing the system which may stem from using 80 year-old signals and wires. The Northeast Corridor line saw up to 30 minute delays going into and out of Penn Station with Amtrak spokesman Craig Shultz explaining that only three trains can pass through the Hudson River Tunnel at a time. Delays were first reported early this morning with the 4:17 a.m. train leaving New York was experiencing power issues. On Monday, a North Jersey Coast line train was reportedly stuck inside the Hudson River tunnel when overhead wires may have sagged due to the heat and snagged on the train causing up to 60 minute delays. Heat related issues again plagued the transit system Tuesday with power outages causing 60-90 minute delays on Wednesday.
