PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Amtrak trains are moving along the entire Northeast Corridor for the first time since last Tuesday's deadly derailment in Philadelphia.

The first train leaving New York left the Manhattan station, heading south, about 5:30 this morning.

Amtrak says staff and crew worked "around the clock" to restore service along the route between Washington and Boston following the crash that killed eight people and injured more than 200.

Also, a speed-control system is now in effect along the northbound section of track where the derailment occurred.
