Amtrak says the Vermonter service is now fully restored following the train derailment in Northfield.
Amtrak service between Washington, D.C., and St. Albans began normal operations on Friday.

Amtrak had been providing passengers traveling south with bus service to Springfield, Massachusetts, or New Haven, Connecticut, where they could board other trains.

A passenger train headed from Vermont to Washington derailed Monday when it hit rocks that had fallen onto the track from a ledge. Seven people were injured. Amtrak says everyone who was injured was released from the hospital the following day.
