A wire problem that caused heavy delays for morning train commuters into and out of New York City has been resolved.

NJ Transit officials say NJ Transit trains are running on or close to schedule Tuesday afternoon following morning delays.


Spokesman John Durso Jr. says a tunnel into New York that had been closed earlier Tuesday due to a downed wire was reopened around 11:40 a.m.


Durso says a train carrying about 500 passengers became temporarily stuck in the tunnel heading into New York at about 5:40 a.m. when an overhead wire malfunctioned.
