NJ Transit train loses power, strands 400
LINDEN — Four-hundred passengers were on board a NJ Transit train that stopped on the tracks at the end of Tuesday morning's commute.
Northeast Corridor Train No. 3718 left Princeton Junction around 8:40 a.m. headed for Penn Station New York when it became stranded around 9:30 a.m. between Linden and Elizabeth. NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith said a rescue train picked up all the passengers and continued on their trip.
No injuries were reported, according to Smith.
Smith said the cause of the problem was a power issue and remains under investigation.
The disabled train caused a 20 minute delay on the inbound North Jersey Coast Line between Rahway and Newark Penn Station. Service was back to normal around 11 a.m.
