Derailment Disrupts Norfolk Service

Amtrak service to Norfolk, Virginia, was suspended after a Norfolk Southern coal train derailed on Tuesday morning.

One pair of Amtrak Northeast Regional Service (Nos. 93 and 94) that normally operated between Norfolk and Boston terminated and originated in Richmond, Virginia.

Another pair of trains (Nos. 84 and 95) were operating between Boston and Washington.

The derailment occurred in Chesapeake, Virginia. There were no injuries.

Resumption of Amtrak service hinged upon the derailment site being cleaned up and the tracks reopened.
