An empty New Jersey Transit train derailed early Wednesday in Manhattan's Penn Station, causing some delays at the beginning of the morning rush hour.
NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast, Montclair-Boonton and Midtown Direct trains initially had 20-minute delays but were back on schedule quickly.
The Long Island Rail Road and city subways were not affected, according to New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
A linchpin in the northeastern U.S. rail system, Penn Station, which is owned by Amtrak, is undergoing accelerated repair work to replace several thousand feet of track, switches and other aging infrastructure.
More than a half million people pass through Penn Station daily on New York City subways and trains run by Amtrak, NJ Transit and the LIRR.
