WASHINGTON – Commuters in the Northeast will have to scramble to get home Friday afternoon due to service outages on Amtrak and various commuter agencies along the Northeast Corridor.

Amtrak service has been temporarily suspended between Washington and Boston due to inclement weather conditions, the passenger carrier says. That includes Acela Express, Northeast Regional, and Keystone Service  trains. All trains operating along the Northeast Corridor will continue to the nearest station.

At the south end of the Corridor, MARC and Virginia Railway Express train service is also curtailed due to the winter storm.

Further north, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority is advising customers of cancelled and late trains due to deteriorating weather conditions and NJ Transit has suspended service on its Morris and Essex Line between Dover and Madison due to a tree down in the overhead wires near Morris Plains. That agency is advising customers of rail service delays up to 20 minutes system-wide due to weather-related issues.
