Train derails at slow speed near Lincoln Tunnel in Manhattan

Rail service into and out of Penn Station New York was suspended Tuesday morning after “minor slow speed derailment” near the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, authorities said. 

Midtown direct service is being diverted to Hoboken until the issue is resolved, transit officials said.

“At approximately 8:55 a.m., Northeast Corridor train 3926, which departed Trenton at 7:32 a.m. and was scheduled to arrive at Penn Station New York at 8:49 a.m., experienced a minor, slow speed derailment just prior to arriving at Penn Station New York,” NJ Transit said through a spokesperson. 

The train remains up right and no injures were reported, officials said. There are approximately 1,500 commuters and crew on board. 

Passengers with NJ Transit rail tickets and passes are being cross honored by PATH at Newark Penn Station, Hoboken and the PATH station at 33rd street, officials said. NJ Transit buses and private carriers will honor the rail tickets as well.
