Yeserday afternoon as MN was running a test train over the newly cut in switches at CP 217 in New Rochelle, the train got it's pantographs entangled in the overhead wire instantly removing tracks 3 and 1 from service. The test train apparently got caught in a wire gap over one of the newly installed switches. MN had to run both eastbound and westbound trains on tracks 2 and 4 the rest of the day. Repairs should have been made to tracks 1 and 3 by this AM.
