NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Some New Jersey Transit trains have been canceled this week because engineers are choosing not to work under the terms of their contract amid the summer-long repair work at Penn Station.

Several trains were canceled Monday afternoon on the North Jersey Coast Line and Northeast Corridor line. An early morning North Jersey Coast Line train was canceled Tuesday.

NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder says engineers are allowed a 48-hour grace period to report for work after schedules are changed. She says that happens a few times a year, and trains occasionally are canceled.

The Associated Press sent emails to engineers' union officials seeking comment on the cancelations. The Penn Station track repairs began last week and are forcing schedule cutbacks through the end of August.
