Amtrak plans to restore some NYC service on Friday

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amtrak says it plans to restore some service on Friday to and from New York City, which has been without intercity train service since it was walloped by superstorm Sandy.

The railroad said the removal of water from flooded train tunnels under the Hudson and East rivers is continuing so that repairs to tracks, signals and power systems can be made. A Friday schedule is expected to be released Thursday.

Service to Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey has been restored, but Northeast Regional service between Newark and New Haven, Conn., and Acela Express service for the length of the Northeast Corridor are canceled for Thursday. Empire Service between New York City and other cities in the state, and Canada are also canceled for Thursday.
