HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) – Rail service is about to be fully restored at a transit station damaged last month when a train traveling more than twice the speed limit crashed, killing a woman on the platform and injuring more than 100 other people.

The return of full service into Hoboken Terminal comes less than three weeks after the Sept. 29 crash.

New Jersey Transit says six more tracks will open at 4 a.m. Monday. The station’s ticket office also has resumed operations.

But officials say tracks 5 and 6 will remain closed as the transit agency continues repairs.

NJ Transit Executive Director Steven Santoro says trains entering the station will now reduce their approach speed from 10 mph to 5 mph for added safety.
