"If anything, we are a little bit ahead of schedule right now", Naparstek said. The FDNY was on the scene after train #7240 was disabled around 4:45 p.m.

At 5:05 p.m., an Amtrak rescue engine towed the disabled NJ Transit train into the station, Tolbert said.

The first train's passengers were provided snacks and water, and power was restored in about an hour, the Amtrak spokesman said. PATH stations in New Jersey, along with the commuter hub at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal, are just some of the places that have seen an uptick in commuters since Monday.

Amtrak train 98 stalled shortly before 11 a.m.in one of the Hudson River tunnels, traveling from Miami, Mike Tolbert said.

Amtrak announced service was restored between NY and New Jersey after a delay of about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, a rescue train brought the train back to the station, where passengers safely disembarked, an Amtrak spokesman said.
