Amtrak says most train service in the Northeast remains suspended and a decision will be made later in the day on restoring limited service north and south of New York on Wednesday.

The railroad said in a statement that Amtrak crews are currently inspecting tunnels, tracks, equipment and stations in the Northeast to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy and are beginning to make repairs to sections of Amtrak-owned track. Amtrak said it is also working closely with other railroads on whose tracks Amtrak trains operate to determine when passenger train service can resume.

Most Amtrak service on the East Coast as far north as Boston and as far south as Raleigh, N.C. remains suspended and stations along those routes are closed.
