Amtrak suspended between Philadelphia, DC

Amtrak service suspended between Philadelphia and Washington; overhead wires damaged

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amtrak has suspended train service between Philadelphia and Washington after overhead wires were damaged in Maryland.

Spokesman Craig Schulz says crews are assessing the damage to the wires Wednesday in Cecil County in northeastern Maryland, but it may take all afternoon to restore service. He says it is not clear yet what caused the damage. The suspension was initially only between Baltimore and Wilmington, Del.

Amtrak says the extensive damage means Acela Express, Northeast Regional and other services are not operating between the two cities, and passengers should expect delays.
