HOBOKEN, N.J. - Rail service has been fully restored at Hoboken Terminal less than three weeks after a commuter train crashed into the station in New Jersey, killing a woman on the platform and injuring more than 100 people.

Six more tracks at Hoboken opened at 4 a.m. Monday, along with the station's ticket office. However, tracks 5 and 6 will remain closed as New Jersey Transit continues repairs.

Trains entering the station will now reduce their approach speed from 10 mph to 5 mph for added safety.

In the Sept. 29 crash, the train's data recorder showed it going twice the 10 mph speed limit just before the crash, which remains under investigation..
