NEW YORK (AP) — Amtrak says it will offer limited express service between New York and Boston which had been suspended following last week's outage on the Metro-North Railroad.
Amtrak says Sunday the successful testing of a temporary electrical system that will power the Metro-North line between New York City and New Haven, Conn., will also allow for limited Acela Express service Monday.
Amtrak says Northeast Regional service will be serviced by diesel trains and warned of possible delays.
An Amtrak spokesman says there will be five Acela Express trains operating in both directions Monday. There are normally 10.
The first northbound Acela Express train will leave New York's Penn Station at 6:20 a.m. Monday. It says the first southbound train will leave Boston's South Station at 6:05 a.m.
