Metro-North to provide regular service on Hudson Line Monday - Fox 2 News Headlines

Metro-North regular service on Hudson Line

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The MTA is providing regular AM peak Metro-North train service on the Hudson Line Monday.

The agency says minimal scattered delays are still possible as crews still work on damaged track from the derailment of a CSX freight train near the Spuyten-Duyvil station in the Bronx on July 18.

Metro-North crews made significant progress in rebuilding 1,500 feet of damaged track over the weekend. Most of the major work is done with the remaining track work, testing and cleanup underway. Metro-North expects to have the second track back in service following Monday's AM peak service which will provide full operating capacity on the Hudson Line for the first time since the derailment.

As crews continued to work on the track over the weekend, Metro-North operated on a substitute train/bus schedule on the Hudson Line to allow crews to carry on uninterrupted at the derailment site near Spuyten-Duyvil station.

Many Hudson Line customers used the Harlem Line for points of travel north and south. Hudson Line tickets are being honored on the Harlem Line and most Metro-North Harlem Line stations provide free weekend parking.

Passengers who must use the Hudson Line, train service is operating between Poughkeepsie station and Yonkers station where shuttle buses are taking customers to the Woodlawn subway station in the Bronx for the No. 4 subway service to 161st-Yankee Stadium and Manhattan. MTA NYC Transit is cross-honoring Metro-North tickets.

When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
