The plastic coating caught in overhead wires caused major delays in Amtrak and NJ transits on Wednesday, slowing drivers on one of the busiest days of the year.
"There was a plastic casing in the cable wires and we held the trains until it was removed," said Amtrak spokesman Jason Abrams in an email shortly after 6 am. "Trains are now moving, but residual delays are expected."
The Northeast corridor and the Northern Jersey coast line were initially suspended due to the problem with the Amtrak wire near North Elizabeth, but later continued hours of delays, according to NY Transit.
Obligatory delays were also noted on the line of the Rritan Valley of NJ Transit.
Amtrak reported delays on some of its trains near the Metropark and Newark airports.
Social media photos showed a packed waiting area at the already busy station in New York Peninsula.

NS transit and private buses were a cross in honor of railway tickets and passes, according to the transit agency. The pass was also a cross in honor of railway tickets and passing.
The accident put off drivers on the day before Thanksgiving, when many people traveled across the region by rail.
NY transit and private carrier buses are cross frequent rail tickets and passes.
The Pass will meet the honest railway tickets and pass through the PSO, NPS and 33.
