Amtrak suspends service Baltimore to Philadelphia

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Amtrak says it has temporarily suspended service between Baltimore and Philadelphia because of problems near Wilmington, Del.

Amtrak said late Monday that service on the Acela Express and Northeast Regional service has been suspended because of mechanical problems involving the overhead electrical system near Wilmington. Trains are being held at Philadelphia 30th Street Station and Washington Union Station.

Amtrak did not say if the problems were weather related, and a spokesman did not immediately respond to an email seeking information.

Amtrak had said earlier that it will operate a modified schedule on the Northeast Corridor between Washington and Boston on Tuesday because of extremely cold weather.

The rail line says crews are making repairs at Wilmington. Amtrak said there was no estimate for restoration of service.
