PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Amtrak says it is operating on a modified schedule in New England because of the recent snowfall in the region.

Amtrak said Tuesday that passengers with reservations on Northeast Regional or Acela Express trains should check the status of the trains before leaving for stations.

The Downeaster service between Brunwsick, Maine, and Boston was canceled Tuesday and Amtrak’s shuttle service between Springfield, Massachusetts, and New Haven, Connecticut, was also on a reduced schedule.

Trains were running on a regular schedule between New York City and Washington but Amtrak said delays were possible.

Waiting for a train Tuesday morning in Providence, Vincent Renou of Tiverton, Rhode Island, said he was worried that he would not make it to Philadelphia for an important meeting because his train was delayed getting out of Boston.
