NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Subway service on the No. 1 line has resumed in both directions following a derailment Wednesday in Harlem.
Crews worked through the night to repair the third rail and protection boards, the MTA said. The cause for the derailment remains under investigation.
More than 400 people were on board a No. 1 train when it derailed just before 6 p.m. Wednesday near the elevated 125th Street subway station.
Cell phone video shows the conductor on the stranded 1 train trying to keep passengers calm.
“Before it came to a halt, there was a jump in the train, the train actually jumped. The lady that was next to me, her son jumped and fell out of the seat,” said Morningside Heights resident Dwight Bowerbank.
