Northeast trains restarting after power problem

PHILADELPHIA - August 24, 2010

The hourlong shutdown derailed the ride to work for commuters for the second time in less than two weeks. In the earlier case, a fallen tree knocked out power and rail signals.

NJ Transit says Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains are operating 60 to 90 minutes behind schedule. Midtown Direct trains are still diverting to Hoboken.

Philadelphia's Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority says all its regional rail service has resumed and are running approximately 60 minutes behind schedule.

Meanwhile, Long Island Rail Road commuters are facing significant delays after canceling 33 westbound morning trains because of a switching station fire Monday.
