An Amtrak Service Advisory, posted on [url=http://www.amtrak.com]Amtrak.com[/url] wrote:AMTRAK CLEARS WATER FROM ONE OF THE HUDSON RIVER TUNNELS
Repairs continue, test train to operate later today; New York City service restoration pending.

Amtrak engineering and transportation forces are working together to restore service to and from New York City from points south and north on the Northeast Corridor.
Water has been pumped from one of the two Amtrak tunnels under the Hudson River and repairs continue in order to operate modified service. Among the procedures being followed is the operation of a test train -- without public passengers -- between New York City and Newark, N.J.
Amtrak will make an announcement later today regarding service restoration at New York City. When service resumes, it will subject to delay while repairs continue.
Reservations and ticketing for the modified service is not yet available. Passengers for the service will be asked to make reservations and/or use the eTicketing option with their computers and smartphones before traveling to Penn Station New York, 30th Street Station in Philadelphia or other Amtrak locations.

I heard on Gov Christies latest news brief that 25% of NJT's cars had been underwater. Mostly stored at Hobeken and MMC. Temporary replacement cars being brought in.Hey SEPTA, NJT called, they want their Comets back.
