Amtrak Empire Corridor Train Service Disrupted in New York Due Possible Broken Water Pipe

NEW YORK — Because of a possible broken water pipe causing water over the tracks north of Penn Station, Empire Service will be disrupted Saturday, Feb. 9 between Albany and New York City.

As a result, two southbound and two northbound trains between Albany and New York ( Nos. 239, 259, 252 and 254) have been canceled. Passengers scheduled on those trains will be re-accommodated on other trains that will originate and terminate at Croton Harmon where passengers will be provided alternate transportation to/from Penn Station.

The Lake Shore Limited (New York to Chicago) and the Adirondack and Maple Leaf trains (Montreal and Toronto) will be re-routed to and from Penn Station.

“Our thanks to our partners at Metro-North for their assistance with providing alternate transportation,” Amtrak said in a statement.

Passengers are encouraged to call 800-USA-RAIL or visit Amtrak.com for schedule information and train status updates.
