A commuter train carrying 900 passengers was evacuated after it got stuck heading into a tunnel at Pennsylvania Station early Sunday, authorities said. No injuries were reported.
Damage to overhead wires brought the electric-powered, Trenton, N.J.-bound NJ Transit train to a halt around 12:45 a.m., spokesman Dan Stessel said. He said the train stopped about 200 feet from the Penn Station platform, and only some cars were in the Amtrak-operated tunnel.
Passengers transferred to another train that pulled up directly behind the disabled one, Stessel said. They were brought back to Penn Station and boarded another train that left for Trenton at 2:50 a.m. on a different track, he said.
Other NJ Transit and Amtrak trains also continued running on the alternate track, Stessel and Amtrak spokeswoman Tracy Connell said.
Crews were working early Sunday to fix the stranded train, and normal NJ Transit service was expected to continue, Stessel said.
NJ Transit links major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
