    What to Know

    • Data recorders from the cab of the NJ Transit train that crashed into Hoboken Terminal last week has been recovered, the NTSB said.

    • The recorders -- known colloquially as a "black box" -- should be able to tell investigators important information about the train.

    • The train's engineer has told investigators he doesn't have any recollection of the crash.

    Federal investigators say it'll be a few days before they have information from the data and video recorders pulled from a New Jersey commuter train that crashed last week.

    The National Transportation Safety Board said Wednesday that engineers at its Washington lab are working to extract data from the devices. The data recorder should contain speed and braking information.

    The Sept. 29 crash at Hoboken Terminal killed a woman and injured more than 100 other people.

    Officials say a data recorder from the rear of the New Jersey Transit train wasn't functioning.
