Amtrak service to NY, Philadelphia suspended Monday night; power problem cited

January 6, 2014

Amtrak service was suspended for about two hours between Washington and cities to the northeast on Monday night because of an electrical problem, authorities said.

Amtrak said about 9:15 p.m. that Northeast Corridor service was halted south of Philadelphia as a result of a problem with the overhead power system near Wilmington, Del.

Trains were being held at Union Station in Washington and at the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, Amtrak said.

At 11:30 p.m. Amtrak said service had been restored. It said residual delays were to be expected as crews worked to clear congestion.
