Amtrak says service between Philadelphia and Washington has been temporarily suspended due to a freight train derailment in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Service was running with 30-minute delays before Amtrak suspended service shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday after two cars from a Norfolk Southern freight train derailed late Wednesday. Media reports say two cars on the 88-car train dumped loads of stone onto the tracks.


No injuries have been reported.
