Steam on the NE Corridor?

Pulled this quote from the Cherry Hill Courier Post article regarding the Philadelphia Flyers' travel woes last night:
 
"The Flyers' travel ordeal began when they parked their cars at Atlantic Aviation at Philadelphia International Airport and caught a bus to 30th Street Station for what is normally a 70-minute commute to New York's Penn Station.
 
Instead, the team's train broke down in Metuchen and sat for nearly two hours. When a steam engine managed to push the train only a few hundred yards, players were asked to unboard and climb into a bus, which dropped them off at their hotel around 11:50 p.m."
 
Steam on the NE Corridor? Highly unlikely to zero. But still - an interesting thought - what local steam engines could come to a potential "rescue" that quickly in the area?

After looking at a map of the area - i ain't got a clue. Nothing with a steamer in the area comes to mind.
