NJ Transit Trains Delayed on Montclair-Boonton Line Due to Derailment

Repair crews worked overnight to get trains running normally again after a New Jersey Transit train derailed Tuesday afternoon in Montclair.

Officials say there was a "slow-speed" derailment on a train running on the Montclair-Boonton line between Claremont Avenue and Pine Street at about 6:20 p.m. 

Around 100 passengers were transferred from the train. No one was hurt, officials said. 

Crews worked for several hours to clear the tracks and make repairs, officials say. In the meantime, all trains on the line are running on one track between the Bay Street and Walnut Street stations.

Delays are currently only 15 to 20 minutes. They're expected to last through the morning rush, but it's not yet clear if trains will normally in the afternoon. 

It's not clear what caused the derailment.
