RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Rail service on the Bergen, Main and Port Jervis lines through Ridgewood was temporarily suspended Wednesday after a tree fell onto the southbound tracks.

Ridgewood and NJ Transit police responded along with village firefighters and an NJT Rail Operations crew after the tree fell near 264 South Broad St. just after 11:30 a.m.

Service resumed on the Main, Bergen and Port Jervis lines at 12:10 p.m. but with 45-minute delays, NJ Transit said.

The lines run to and from Hoboken through Secaucus between Bergen and Rockland and Orange counties -- including stops in Sloatsburg, Harriman and Port Jervis.
