Trains into New York City are experiencing delays of 10 to 15 minutes seven hours after downed wires forced the evacuation of a New Jersey Transit train in Metuchen.
NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says the 11-car train came to a stop in Metuchen on its way to New York City around 7:40 a.m. Seven hundred passengers on the train had to get off and board another one.
The downed wire continues to cause delays of up to 15 minutes on the busy Northeast Corridor line between Trenton and New York. The wait time has at least improved a bit from this morning, when delays were up to an hour.
Inbound trains have resumed service at New Brunswick, Edison and Metuchen using low-level platforms.
