Commuter rail service has resumed at a New Jersey transit station damaged after a train crash killed a woman on the platform and injured more than 100.

Eight of the 17 tracks at Hoboken Terminal reopened Monday.

Tracks 1 to 9 will remain out of service until further notice as repair work continues in that section of the busy station.

Train 1614 slammed through a bumper at the end of the track and dislodged an overhead canopy, showering debris onto the train on Sept. 29. Federal investigators say the train sped up and was going twice the 10 mph speed limit just before the crash.

Passengers who were on the train can reclaim their belongings at the customer service center.
