One of the trains at Penn Station in NY derailed Monday, causing headaches for transit riders.

Passengers were kept on board for nearly an hour as the train was systematically emptied.

Five people suffered minor injuries in the derailment, officials said. About 1,200 passengers were on the train at the time.
