Amtrak is receiving a $2.45 billion loan from the federal government to buy new trains, upgrade tracks and make platform improvements along the busy Northeast corridor, the largest such loan ever by the Department of Transportation, officials announced Friday.
The introduction of 70 new locomotives on Amtrak's most heavily traveled line three years ago has contributed to a reduction in engine-related delays of nearly 25 percent, the national passenger railroad said Thursday.
NJ Transit commuters and Garden State Parkway drivers can blame a fallen wire near Metropark for westbound trains skipping the station on Wednesday morning and causing a 45 minute delay and miles-long delays on the Parkway.
