Third Rail Fire

Postby Jeff Smith » Tue Aug 29, 2017 10:39 am

Seems kind of unusual: ... -rail-fire

A fire on the Hudson Line caused damage to a third rail and cut electricity. Metro-North reports service is currently experiencing delays up to 50 minutes in both directions due to single-tracking and third rail damage from Morris Heights to Marble Hill.
Next stop, Willoughby

The only unusual part of the incident is the media picked up on it.
