Amtrak Service Between Wilmington, Philly Restored After Propane Leak

Posted: Updated:
WILMINGTON, Del. -

Service along Amtrak's Northeast Corridor line between Wilmington and Philadelphia has been restored after a propane leak at a nearby shop facility halted trains.

Amtrak says the leak occurred at its Wilmington Shop facility.

Firefighters with the Wilmington Fire Department contained the leak.

Amtrak says passengers should expect residual delays.

SkyFox flew over the leak Wednesday morning, where firefighters were staged near the tracks as they worked to contain it.

According to Amtrak's website, passengers who have paid for tickets but choose not to travel to Wednesday's disruption can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel.

SEPTA trains also experienced delays in the same area. SEPTA says its Wilmington/Newark line service has since resumed.
