In the 2014 Hoboken incident, “passengers were quickly escorted off the train,” Nancy Snyder, a New Jersey Transit spokeswoman, said in an email.
For 2015 and 2016, New Jersey Transit faces penalties of at least $262,000 -- half the total it paid over five years as the U.S.
In June, the Federal Railroad Administration, citing declining safety, started an operations audit of New Jersey Transit.
In response, the reports show, the railroad issued directives on applying brakes and cutting engines.
On April 24, the railroad told riders to expect 15-minute weekday delays, and double that on weekends “until further notice” as Amtrak works on tracks.
