Police say it appears a pedestrian was hit by a train.

They're not sure how long ago the man was hit along tracks for the SEPTA R2 line. An engineer spotted the body at about 7 a.m. Thursday next to the tracks in Stanton, Delaware near the Newport Industrial Park.

The investigation is affecting SEPTA south of Wilmington and Amtrak service to Washington and New York City.
