Amtrak service west of Albany to be restored

Posted: Updated:

FONDA, N.Y. (AP) - Amtrak service west of Albany is almost back to normal after being interrupted by a massive freight train derailment last week.

CSX railroad crews and contractors worked around the clock to clear wreckage and replace damaged tracks after the derailment Thursday morning near Fonda, 35 miles west of Albany.

Amtrak service was disrupted by the accident, with several trains cancelled and others operating with alternate transportation between Albany and Buffalo.

Amtrak says it's working to restore full service by Tuesday. On Monday, the Lake Shore Limited, Maple Leaf and Empire Service trains 281 and 284 will operate through the affected area, subject to delays.

Empire Service trains 280 and 283 will have chartered buses taking passengers between Albany and Syracuse.

    Workers continue making repairs after a New Jersey Transit train derailed on the Montclair-Boonton line. NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder says passengers on that line are facing delays of up to 20 minutes in both directions on Wednesday because the railroad can only use one track. The train derailed between the Bay Street and Walnut Street stations in Montclair on Tuesday afternoon.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio won't be reimbursing the city for personal travels that involve his security detail. "We have followed the conflict of interest board guidelines. I am following their guidelines to the letter," said de Blasio. The mayor has been heavily criticized for not paying the city back for travel expenses. Attention around the issue started last week when de Blasio was spotted not paying for a subway ride to Barclays Center while on official business.
