NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The freight train derailment in the Bronx is far from being fixed.

Regular service on Metro-North’s Hudson Line south of Yonkers will be suspended for the entire weekend.

Metro-North says limited Hudson Line service will operate between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers stations, including hourly service through the weekend.

Spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said 10 of the freight train’s 24 cars derailed around 8:40 p.m. Thursday between the Spuyten Duyvil and Riverdale stations. The train was moving garbage from New York City.

The area where the derailment occurred has just one track in each direction.

Anders said the tracks in that section of the railroad were fouled. No trains were stranded because of the service suspension.

The Hudson line runs from Manhattan to Poughkeepsie, about 80 miles north.

There were no reports of injuries.
