A New Jersey Transit train has become disabled, causing delays in and out of New York Penn Station Saturday evening.

Amtrak authorities said electrical issues with overhead wires were to blame for the latest woes at the beleaguered transit hub.

A New Jersey Transit train with almost 600 people on board was briefly disabled near the tunnel outside of Penn Station on Saturday afternoon.

Amtrak travel between NY and New Jersey was briefly suspended, but had resumed on Amtrak rails by 1:15 p.m.

"It's been a very good week", Naparstek said during a conference call with reporters.

The work was initially scheduled to be done over a few years on nights and weekends, but two recent derailments and other problems that spotlighted the station's aging infrastructure convinced Amtrak to accelerate the work schedule.

NJ Transit trains were delayed in and out of Penn Station, but they were running on or close to schedule within three hours of the incident, according to officials.

Commuters have been bracing for a terrible summer after Amtrak and the MTA announced a massive rehab of its tracks and switching stations and resulting service cuts at Penn Station.
