The affected train was sidelined at Boro Hall while firefighters used thermal imaging cameras in an attempt to locate the smoke’s origin. Crews from NJ Transit Rail Operations assisted in the investigation process. It is believed the train was taken out of service following its release by Glen Rock fire officials. No injuries were reported by any passengers or crew members. Glen Rock Police and NJ Transit Police officers provided on scene crowd & motor vehicle traffic control throughout the incident.
