NJ Transit derailment causes delays

- New Jersey Transit train service has resumed in and out of Penn Station New York with big delays after a train car derailed Thursday evening.  The railroad warned commuters that the delays would stretch into the Friday morning commute.

NJ Transit said a train on the Montclair-Boonton Line had a "minor slow speed train derailment" after leaving the station and before entering the tunnel under the Hudson River.

"One set of wheels on one car derailed. There were no customers in the car at the time," NJ Transit said in a statement. "No injuries were reported to the approximately 900-1000 customers or crew on board." 

Rail service was suspended for a time but resumed around 8 p.m.

"Midtown Direct Line trains will continue to be diverted to Hoboken Terminal through the remainder of the service night," the agency tweeted. "PATH will cross-honor rail tickets and passes at 33rd St., NPS and HOB. NJT rail tickets will be cross-honored by NJT and private carrier buses."

Cross-honoring ended early Friday morning.
