NJ Transit train evacuated in after suspicious note found

(The following story appeared on the Star-Ledger website on July 29.)

SOUTH AMBOY, N.J. — Authorities evacuated about 200 people from a NJ Transit train in South Amboy this morning after a passenger found a suspicious note, officials said.

The train was removed from the main line after the note was found at 7:15 a.m. on the train traveling from New York to Long Branch on the North Jersey Coastline. Transit police searched the cars with dogs, said NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel.

The incident did not cause any significant delays, but Stessel said the 200 passengers who were evacuated waited about 45 minutes for another train.
