Amtrak service is still out between Philadelphia and New York, one of the most heavily traveled parts of the nation's passenger rail system.

The problem is a record flood that submerged the station in Trenton, N.J., on Sunday.

Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter says the water has receded and
engineers are assessing damage.

She says service is unlikely to be restored through the station on Tuesday, and it is not yet clear when it might be back. She says there should be a clearer picture of the problem and repair timetable later Tuesday.

Trains run by New Jersey Transit and Philadelphia's transit agency also are not running into New Jersey's capital.

Amtrak is running some trains between New York City and Boston and between Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
