The first northbound Acela train will be Train 2190, scheduled to leave Penn Station at 6:20 a.m.  The first southbound departure from Boston will be Train 2153, scheduled to leave South Station at 6:05 a.m.

Northeast Corridor service will continue to run with diesel engines with delays expected.

Metro-North is bringing in power from a  temporary substation to provide limited electricity to power both Metro-North and Amtrak trains on an eight-mile stretch of track between Harrison and Mount Vernon. A power failure in a Con Edison feeder cable last week forced the railroads to press diesel engines into service between New York and Stamford, Connecticut.

Full repairs are expected to be complete by October 8
