Baltimore Sun - - NATION & WORLD -

HOBO­KEN, N.J. — Rail ser­vice re­sumed Mon­day at a tran­sit sta­tion dam­aged when a train trav­el­ing more than twice the speed limit crashed, killing a woman on the plat­form and in­jur­ing more than 100 other peo­ple.

The re­turn of par­tial ser­vice into Hobo­ken Ter­mi­nal was wel­comed by com­muters nearly two weeks af­ter the Sept. 29 crash.

Eight of the 17 tracks at Hobo­ken Ter­mi­nal re­opened, ac­cord­ing to New Jersey Tran­sit. Tracks 10 to 17 re­opened, while tracks 1 to 9 will re­main out of ser­vice as re­pair work con­tin­ues in that sec­tion of the busy sta­tion, where com­muters con­nect with other trains and fer­ries head­ing into New York City.

Tran­sit work­ers were stand­ing on the plat­form to greet com­muters, hand­ing out free wa­ter bot­tles next to a sign that said, “Thanks for your pa­tience.”
