All those commuters who are reportedly giving up their cars to take NJ Transit are going to love this: A switch and signal problem in Newark is causing some serious delays for Amtrak and NJ Transit trains running into and out of Penn Station this evening. NJ Transit is saying 45-60 minutes while Amtrak is saying 60-90 minutes.

On the plus side, this seems to have nothing to do with the water-damaged rails that Amtrak is planning to start working on this weekend. On the down side? It seems like the poor Jersey commuters just can't catch a break these days what with all the derailments, delays and stuck trains. Almost makes you think twice about parking and riding...

NJ Transit currently has no estimated time as to when service will get back on schedule.
