New Jersey Transit could suffer a setback on restoring all service because of the new storm.

  • Northeast Corridor:  Service between Trenton Transit Center and New York Penn Station is operating on a special schedule. 

A nor'easter could set back repairs to NJ Transit's rail system that's offering limited service in the wake of Sandy.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says crews aren't allowed to perform some types of work if winds surpass 20 mph.

NJ Transit resumed partial service last Friday. The Northeast Corridor, Main and Port Jervis Lines and Raritan Valley Line are on modified schedules. The North Jersey Coast Line and Bergen and Pascack Valley lines are suspended, as are the Montclair-Boonton and Morris & Essex lines.

Power loss on the Bergen and Pascack Valley lines means crossing gates, switches and signals have to be repaired.

NJ Transit is using additional buses to connect commuters with ferry service into Manhattan.

Cumberbatch only spoke during the brief hearing to say he understood the charge. His attorney said they wouldn't comment out of respect for the police officer's family.
