Amtrak train to NYC ends up in Philly suburbs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Amtrak officials are looking into how a New York-bound train accidentally ended up in the Philadelphia suburbs.

The Keystone train that originated in Harrisburg took a wrong turn onto regional rail lines after leaving Philadelphia's 30th Street Station last week.

It wound up at a local train station in Bala Cynwyd (KIN'-wid), which is serviced by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.

The train apparently missed a signal after leaving Philadelphia. SEPTA officials helped the crew return to the city, where passengers debarked and got on another train to New York.

An Amtrak spokesman tells The Philadelphia Inquirer ( that the train's crew is being held out of work until they undergo additional training.
