    Amtrak is promising normal service for the Wednesday evening rush after downed wires suspended service earlier in the day, causing massive delays along the Northeast Corridor.

    Service between New York City and Philadelphia was suspended for nearly two hours, and then two of four tracks were opened by about 11:30 a.m.

    Amtrak says all three tracks will be running by the evening rush and all four by Thursday morning.

    Riders should expect only "minimal delays" for the rest of Wednesday, Amtrak said.
