Workers have removed a disabled NJ Transit train that slowed rail traffic in and out of New York City Wednesday.     

NJ Transit spokeswoman Courtney Carroll says Train 3705 broke down after it left New York City just outside the Hudson River rail tunnel around 7 a.m.     

There's no word what caused the problem.     

The train was pulled back to New York's Penn Station by 7:20 a.m. and passengers were transferred to another train.     

There were residual delays on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line.     

Midtown Direct trains to New York resumed normal service at 8 a.m. after being diverted to Hoboken. outbound service will resume at 8:45 a.m.
