Some 550 cold passengers arrived in New York City 90 minutes after their disabled train slowed rail traffic along the busy Northeast Corridor.

New Jersey Transit spokesman Dan Stessel says the train was headed for New York when the locomotive broke down near the Portal Bridge in Secaucus around 7 a.m. Monday.

Stessel says passengers couldn't be safely transferred to another train and there was difficulty towing the disabled train.

It was pulled into New York's Penn Station at 8:45 a.m. NJ Transit trains on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast

Line and Midtown Direct operated up to 60 minutes behind schedule in and out of New York City until about 11:30 a.m.

Amtrak trains were back on schedule after morning delays.
