Following Sunday's deadly train derailment in the Bronx, the MTA has announced that the Metro-North Hudson Line will be restored to near-normal service tomorrow morning. Train crews have been working around the clock to rebuild tracks and clear wreckage from the stretch where the tragic accident occurred. The train, which was going approximately 82 miles per hour when it hit a sharp curve at Spuyten Duyvil, crashed in an area with three tracks; service will operate on one of those starting Wednesday morning.
Six morning peak trains on the Hudson Line will be combined into three on that single viable track. Commuters should plan for delays of 10 to 15 minutes—which is substantially speedier and more convenient than the train-subway-bus rigmarole that was in effect yesterday and today. The MTA said in a press release they expect full service to resume in the next few days.
