Some Amtrak service still disrupted by storm
By The Associated Press
Amtrak uses its own tracks and those of CSX and Norfolk Southern for the Crescent which runs twice-a-day between New York and New Orleans, with stops in Georgia in Toccoa, Gainesville and Atlanta. Check with Amtrak concerning Crescent service in the wake of interruptions caused by superstorm Sandy.
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amtrak says most train service in the Northeast remains suspended and a decision will be made later in the day on restoring limited service north and south of New York on Wednesday.
The railroad said in a statement that Amtrak crews are currently inspecting tunnels, tracks, equipment and stations in the Northeast to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy and are beginning to make repairs to sections of Amtrak-owned track. Amtrak said it is also working closely with other railroads on whose tracks Amtrak trains operate to determine when passenger train service can resume.
Most Amtrak service on the East Coast as far north as Boston and as far south as Raleigh, N.C. remains suspended and stations along those routes are closed.
