PHILADELPHIA- Amtrak trains are moving south out of New York again first time since the deadly crash last week.

The first train left the Manhattan station about 5:30 a.m. Monday.

Amtrak officials had said that trains along the busy Northeast Corridor from Washington to Boston would resume service Monday in "complete compliance" with federal safety orders following the derailment.

Company President Joseph Boardman said Amtrak staff and crew have been working around the clock to restore service following Tuesday night's crash that killed eight people and injured more than 200 others.
