Tuesday night’s Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia is affecting service on trains in North Carolina.
The accident, which killed at least seven people and injured more than 200, has closed the tracks at Philadelphia, preventing trains from the state from reaching New Jersey and New York.
The Carolinian, which runs between Charlotte and New York with stops in the Triangle, will operate only as far north as Philadelphia, with no alternative transportation to and from New York provided by Amtrak.
Meanwhile, the long-distance trains that pass through the state will also be curtailed in the Northeast.
