NJ Transit Train Derailment Causes Delays

August 19, 2014 at 8:40 PM

MONTCLAIR, NJ - NJ Transit travel alerts had been issued for the Montclair-Boonton rail line Tuesday, as a result of a train derailment between Bay Street and Walnut Street Stations. NJ Transit officials reported that the slow-speed derailment occurred on a train bound for Mountain Lakes between Claremont Avenue and Pine Street in Montclair at about 6:20PM.  The train #1009 originated in Hoboken at 5:50PM.  

Tommy Cammarata, of Cedar Grove, was on the train car that derailed and said, "I felt like the (train) car was going to tip over."  He said that the derailment made a lot of noise and everyone was silent on the train when it happened. "It felt almost like an earthquake with a slight sway back and forth, probably lasted only 5-10 seconds, but seemed longer." Cammarata tweeted about his experience including a picture of the train.

There were no reported injuries.
