Amtrak to Resume Northeast Service Monday After Fatal DerailmentDavid Lerman
Amtrak will resume passenger service in the Northeast corridor on Monday, a day earlier than planned, after replacing track near Philadelphia damaged in a fatal derailment last week, the railroad said in an e-mailed statement.
Service will resume with an early-morning train leaving Philadelphia for New York City, Amtrak Chief Executive Officer Joseph Boardman said Sunday. The line was shut last week after a train traveling at twice the speed limit derailed, killing eight passengers and injuring more than 200 others.
