Pawtucket Times - - RELIGION/OBITUARIES -

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Am­trak trains are back on track be­tween New York and Con­necti­cut after a downed power wire dis­rupted rail ser­vice in the North­east for sev­eral hours.

Am­trak of­fi­cials say an over­head wire that pow­ers the trains came down Fri­day morn­ing near Pel­ham Bay in the Bronx. It was re­paired by the early af­ter­noon. All ser­vice be­tween New York and New Haven, Con­necti­cut, was suspended, af­fect­ing all Am­trak trains in and out of New Eng­land.

Rail ser­vice of­fi­cials did not im­me­di­ately dis­close how the wire came down.
