NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Shore Line Trains are back on or close to schedule after a derailment in New Haven Tuesday night.

A Shore Line East train went off the tracks right in the middle of the evening commute when the front two wheels came off the track of the lead car.

None of the 14 passengers were hurt.

Early Wednesday morning Shore Line East posted one eastbound train from New Haven to New London, and at least four westbound trains, would have delays:

  • Train # 1600 is experiencing delays of 30-40 minutes in service. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Train # 1621 is experiencing delays of 30-40 minutes in service. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Train # 1627 is experiencing delays of 30-40 minutes in service. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Train # 1633 is experiencing delays of 30-40 minutes in service. We apologize for the inconvenience.

About 2,500 passengers take Shore Line East daily. Amtrak and the Connecticut Department of Transportation are investigating what caused the derailment.

Shortly before 7:00 a.m. Shore Line East said they were back on schedule.

Amtrak trains were also delayed because of this, but Amtrak said on Twitter “Normal service resumes East of New Haven, CT (NHV) after the commuter train disruption.”
