NYFD responding to a train derailment at Penn Station

They're running trains on a modified schedule on the Northeast Regional, Empire and Keystone services because several tracks in the transit hub were closed, they said.

New Jersey Transit said Monday that one of its trains derailed at New York Penn Station. It led to cancellations and delays that also affected riders on Amtrak and the Long Island Rail Road.

New York Fire Department officials reported four people were injured, though the severity of the injuries was unknown.

Tiffany Mazzone, a compliance officer who was commuting to Manhattan from Princeton, New Jersey, was standing near the door in the second-to-last vehicle when she felt a "major jolt".

Frank Fleming was trying to attend the Mets opener like he has done for almost two decades Monday when a New Jersey Transit train in front of his derailed at Penn Station. Amtrak owns and maintains Penn Station's tracks and infrastructure. Direct service from NY to Hoboken resumed around noon.

Meanwhile, some commuters took to Twitter Tuesday morning describing crowded conditions on NJ TRANSIT, PATH and LIRR trains.

Others at Penn Station faced canceled or delayed trains.

"I feel blessed that I am okay and hope everyone else is too", he said.

Funding for the project, however, is at risk in President Donald Trump's proposed budget. All told, 1,400 people were evacuated during the incident, with about 600 having to walk down the train tracks to safety at Penn Station. Service can not resume on those tracks until the repairs are made.

"It would have been a minor blip instead of a major nightmare for commuters", he said.
