WASHINGTON (AP) — Amtrak service along the East Coast is being disrupted and Virginia Railway Express is canceling Fredericksburg line trains after a coal train derailed south of Washington.

Amtrak says service will continue to be disrupted Friday because the railroad is shut down south of Quantico, Va., with all tracks blocked. VRE is canceling all trains on the line after Thursday’s derailment.

The disruption affects Amtrak trains running between Washington and Newport News, Va., and from New York to Miami, Charlotte, N.C., and Savannah, Ga. Auto train service between Lorton, Va. and Sanford, Fla. is also affected.

Limited alternate transportation will be available on some routes.
