The train's engine derailed in the Sunnyside Yard while it was being operated by an Amtrak crew around 4:25 a.m., according to a statement from NJ Transit.

The engine was re-railed just after 6 a.m.

The train's passenger cars derailed on Track 4 and are blocking Tracks 1 through 5 inside Penn Station.

No injuries were reported.

NJ Transit said service has returned to normal after earlier 20-minute delays in both directions on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast, Montclair-Boonton, and Midtown Direct lines.

Commuter Gabriel Gail said his Northeast Corridor corridor train was only delayed by a few minutes out of Trenton.
