SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Amtrak Vermonter will resume regular rail service on Friday after a derailment stopped service Monday.

For several days the #55 and #56 trains were on modified service after Monday’s derailment. Anyone traveling north of Springfield dealt with long delays and bus rides while crews worked to clear the tracks.

On Thursday, normal service returned to the northbound #56 Train, but the #55 Train going south was still modified.

Both trains will run as normal between St. Albans, Vermont and Washington D.C. on Friday.
