Hoboken terminal train service fully resumed on Oct. 17, following damage from last month’s accident. Six more tracks opened at 4 a.m. on Monday morning, while tracks Nos. 5 and 6 remain closed for further repair. The Sept. 29 train crash killed a woman and injured more than 100 commuters. The train was determined to be traveling at more than twice the speed limit of 10 mph. To ensure safety in the future, trains are now required to lower their speed to 5 mph when pulling into a station. The New Jersey congressional delegation has requested $10 million from the U.S. Dept. of Transportation in preventative funds.
