Trains headed into Penn station disabled due to power issues

Tweets that prove Hoboken's been hit the hardest by Penn Station repairs

A rescue train sent to tow that train into the station proved no help when it was stopped in its tracks by the same electrical problems.

It happened just before 5 p.m. between the platform and the tunnel.

No injuries were reported, but some riders vented their frustrations on social media: Earlier in the day, an Amtrak train from Miami to NY came to a halt just as it was exiting the North River tunnel into Penn Station due to the power issues.

Friday marked the fifth day of major repairs that are closing tracks and forcing commuter rail lines to reduce schedules at the nation's busiest train station, a critical part of the Northeast Corridor system.

The disabled train sparked delays of up to 30 minutes for commuters for New Jersey Transit as Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended.

The 155 passengers on the stalled train were stuck inside while Amtrak called in a "rescue train" to tug the disabled train into the station. Amtrak sent a second train out to the train, but the rescue train also became disabled.

Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended, but had resumed on Amtrak rails by 1:15 p.m.

There is no word as to whether the power problems are associated with the Penn Station rehab. No work crew injuries were reported this week, he said. NJ Transit officials say service was restored in a half hour. However, the disabled trains resulted in delays on other trains between NY and New Jersey.

The fix work at Penn Station has forced several tracks to be closed at a time.
