You could conceivably make it the last stop and wye at MO, but Fordham is not the easiest subway transfer to make; the Third Avenue El stopped running in 1973 . It's a bit of a walk up to the Concourse; doable but not great. I think the alternate stops are just fine. Yonkers? Maybe for the island platforms, but you might as well go to Yankee. And Yankee Stadium is indeed one of the alternatives, so why bother with Yonkers? New Haven is using Woodlawn; seems fine to me. Why tie up Fordham?Isn't there a relatively new CP around Botanical Gardens that could be used to send trains back east?
Shhhh. No one has mentioned Penn Access yet. Shhhh.

Fire damaged/weakened steel structures are very tricky to fix, and (as a result) not usually either quick or easy to repair.
UPDATE:Crews have made significant progress on repairs to the railroad's Park Avenue Viaduct that was damaged by Tuesday's four-alarm fire beneath the structure. This has allowed us to bring a third track back to service in order to provide an enhanced Saturday schedule.
