Amtrak service resumes after Conn. train derailsMarch 17, 2013 @ 6:52 pm
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Amtrak has resumed service between New York and Boston after rail lines in Connecticut were blocked by a derailed freight train.
The first northbound departure from New York's Penn Station left about 6 p.m., 80 minutes late, on Sunday. The first southbound departure from Boston's South Station was more than 50 minutes late, leaving at just after 6 p.m.
Amtrak says commuters should expect some delays.
The Providence & Worcester freight train cars were empty when they derailed east of New Haven on Sunday morning.
Passengers who have paid but chose to not travel because of the disruption can receive a refund or voucher. Some tickets booked online that were not printed can be modified or canceled on Amtrak.com or by using the free Amtrak mobile app.
