HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) – New Jersey Transit trains will be running once again at a transit station damaged after a deadly train crash late last month.

The agency says eight of the 17 tracks at the Hoboken Terminal will reopen Monday morning.

Tracks 10 to 17 will be open for rail service, beginning with the first train. But Tracks 1 to 9 will remain out of service until further notice as repair work continues.

Investigators say the train sped up and was going twice the 10 mph speed limit when it crashed into the station Sept. 29, killing a woman on the platform and injuring more than 100 people.

Service on the commuter line into the busy station that connects travelers to trains headed for New York City has been out since.
