Train service between New York and Boston restored after route disruption

NEW YORK — Amtrak train service between New York and Boston has been restored after a transformer went out, apparently due to a lightning strike, the railroad said Saturday night.

The outage caused service disruption on all tracks between New York’s Penn Station and Union Station in New Haven, Connecticut, beginning Saturday afternoon.

Amtrak, in a notice posted on its website, announced that service had been restored.

Afternoon trains between Boston and Virginia were running without delays Saturday. Most trains were scheduled to run on schedule Sunday, though some were canceled and others were expected to run on a modified schedule, the company said.

Customers who had reservations on affected trains will be able to travel on trains with similar schedules or on other days, the railway service said on Saturday.

Amtrak said it would not charge extra fees for those who want to change their reservations.
