The head of New Jersey Transit is warning customers that train cancellations will continue. At a board meeting in Newark yesterday, Kevin Corbett said the shortage of trains and engineers are issues that won’t be solved overnight. He says the agency is losing engineers to retirement and other railroads with higher pay faster than it can replace them and some are now taking vacation and unscheduled days off. There have been dozens of trains cancelled daily at times over the past few weeks.
