Metro-North Railroad crews continue to work to recover from last night's Hudson Line mudslide between Glenwood and Greystone stations on the Hudson Line. The mudslide was caused by water flowing down a steep embankment after a major fire in a nearby residential neighborhood. This afternoon crews have restored service on a second of the Hudson Line's four tracks, with efforts continuing to reopen a third track. Metro-NorthIt's not really clear yet what to expect Friday morning but Hudson Line service should be in better shape than it was on Thursday morning.

Trains on the New Haven and Harlem lines were delayed for 60 to 90 minutes for part of Sunday morning, said Lizelly Gutierrez, a spokeswoman from Metro-North Railroad. The Harlem line was [back] on schedule by around 9 a.m. [Sunday] while the New Haven line was on time by around 11:15 a.m, Metro-North tweeted. “Shortly after midnight, thunderstorms caused a loss in signal power between Mt. Vernon East and Harrison,” Gutierrez said. “ Storms also caused downed trees on the New Haven line, as well as downed trees between Southeast and Purdys on the Harlem Line. These storm related issues resulted in six terminated trains and 14 trains with delays in excess of 90 minutes. Some customers waited for alternate train service at Wakefield station, which caused additional delays...All repairs have been completed, and we anticipate a normal rush on Monday. “ LinkOne of the trains that took a major delay was 6598, the 12:07 am GCT-New Haven local.
Ethan Fry, a passenger on the train, said he arrived in Fairfield shortly before 7 a.m.—nearly seven hours after leaving Grand Central. Passengers were stranded in Wakefield around 2:30 a.m. and then taken off the train at Botanical Garden Station, where Fry said hundreds of people were “herded” onto a diesel train that made local stops on the way to New Haven.The following Stamford local, 6300 departing GCT at 12:25 am, was also seriously delayed.
Neil Vigdor, a reporter with The New York Times, described his trip as the “train ride from hell.” His train left Grand Central at 12:25 a.m. Sunday and arrived in Greenwich five hours and 13 minutes later, he tweeted. The train took an hour and 20 minutes to go the 11 miles from Grand Central to just past Fordham, Vigdor said. Passengers were taken off the train in Wakefield around 3 a.m. before going to Botanical Gardens, where they boarded the diesel train, he said.The Harlem Line did not seem to have experienced the same kinds of delays, but passengers were being bused between Croton Falls and Southeast because of a downed tree and third rail damage.
