NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Amtrak says it’s set to resume service between New York and Boston after rail lines in Connecticut were blocked by a derailed freight train.
The first northbound departure from New York’s Penn Station is set for 5 p.m. Sunday and the first southbound departure from Boston’s South Station is scheduled for 4:10 p.m.
Amtrak says commuters should expect some delays.
The Providence & Worcester said the freight train cars were empty when they derailed east of New Haven Sunday morning.
