NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A No. 1 subway train derailed on the elevated tracks in Harlem on Wednesday night, leaving passengers stranded for more than an hour and shutting down much of the line.
The line remained shut down Wednesday night, and it was not clear if it would be running in time for the morning commute.
The damaged train was off the tracks by 10:25 p.m., but officials told CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider that 200 feet of track must still be repaired.
A Metropolitan Transportation Authority representative told WCBS 880 that one set of wheels of one car derailed around 5:50 p.m.
