NEW YORK (AP) - The deadly Amtrak crash in Philadelphia is hampering train travel between New York and Washington.

At New York’s Penn Station, train service to Boston was operating normally on Wednesday morning. But no southbound Amtrak trains were running.

Travelers headed to Philadelphia and Washington are scrambling to figure out how to get to their destinations.

Attorney Bill Atkins said he would take New Jersey Transit to Newark Airport.

He planned to take a plane from Newark home to the Washington area.

Train 188, a Northeast Regional, was headed from Washington to New York when it derailed in Philadelphia shortly after 9 p.m.

Amtrak said the train was carrying 238 passengers and five crew members.
