Trains stall at Penn Station, causing delays

New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it's cautiously optimistic after the first week of major repairs at Penn Station, the busiest train station in the country. And according to Amtrak, the track repairs that it's now administering in the tunnels between ny and New Jersey are going better than expected, too. A rescue engine was sent at 5:14 p.m.to pull the train into track 8 at Penn Station. "The train became disabled just west of the station".

A New Jersey Transit train with almost 600 people on board was briefly disabled outside of Penn Station on Saturday afternoon.

88th minute goal sees USMNT win Group B on goal difference
Arroyo doubled the lead on the hour mark following another corner, and seven minutes later Torres made sure of the win. Corona, the late runner, took one touch forward and a pair of touches to his right to dodge two defenders.

After 20 minutes, a rescue train brought the train back to the station, where passengers safely disembarked, an Amtrak spokesman said.

For several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit - as well as Amtrak passengers who ride between Boston and Washington, D.C. - that means fewer trains during peak periods, the result of track closures to accommodate the repairs. Work also is being done on switch #89 which was the site of a July 6 derailment of an NJ Transit train, he said.
