Atlantic City Rail Line open early between Philadelphia, Cherry Hill

Trains are back on track along the Atlantic City Rail Line between Philadelphia and Cherry Hill following repairs to a damaged rail bridge.

Service had been shut down since last Friday when a garbage truck struck the overpass in Pennsauken.

Repairs were expected to take two weeks, but New Jersey Transit says crews completed the work more than a week early.

It says it has resumed full service, effective Thursday.

However, in case you already made other Thursday plans, "NJ Transit buses, River Line and PATCO will continue to cross-honor Atlantic City Rail Line tickets and passes throughout the service day on Thursday."
