Suspension of the Atlantic City railway has been extended until April.

The NJ Transit line, that provides service between Philly and AC, ceased back in September to install a federally-mandated emergency brakes.

In a statement released Friday, NJ Transit Executive Director Kevin Corbett said, “We recognize the impact that these service adjustments have had on our valued customers, particularly those who use our ACRL and Princeton Dinky services. Our goal is to begin restoring a service that remains reliable and predictable for customers as quickly as possible. I share our customers’ frustration and thank them for their continued patience during this time.”

The delay until spring is reportedly due to equipment and engineering shortage, according to 6abc. It's not good news for riders who prefer using the AC rail line to attend events at the convention center, like the beer festival.
