Amtrak To Provide Modified Northeast Regional Service Schedule

Posted: Updated:

A day after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the east coast, Amtrak says it will provide modified Northeast Regional and Downeaster service, along with trains between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, starting Wednesday.

Amtrak says it will provide Northeast Regional service between Newark, N.J. and points south, including restored Virginia service to Lynchburg, Richmond and Newport News.

Keystone Service trains will also be operated Wednesday from Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

Amtrak's modified Downeaster service will include trains between Boston and Portland, Maine along with some overnight services to and from the Northeast.

Amtrak says it is removing water and making repairs to track, signal and power systems within its tunnels under the Hudson and East River, which means service directly to and from New York Penn Station from either the north or south is not available.

You can check the status of your train on the alerts page of the Amtrak website.
