Commuting into New York City is more than just a commute –it’s a lifestyle. But with all the congestion and traffic, we sometimes forget the beautiful scenic views we come across as we head into NYC.
Around 7:45 p.m., the computers that run the railroad’s signal system lost power when one of two main power supply units was taken out of service for replacement.
According to Metro-North, a signal issue caused the service outage.
A published report said Monday night that the president of the Metro-North Railroad has decided to step down.
The MTA said the new protections will warn engineers of approaching speed reductions and automatically apply the train’s emergency brakes if speed is not lowered to the 30 mph maximum in the curve.
Crews from Metro-North Railroad finished reconstructing a second track near the Spuyten Duyvil station, allowing resumption of full service Thursday morning, the MTA said.

The Metro-North train that derailed while rounding a riverside curve in the Bronx was traveling at 82 mph at the time, a federal official said Monday.
The Metro-North Rail Road will continue to provide shuttle buses and direct Hudson Line commuters to subway trains Tuesday, following the derailment in the Bronx that left four people dead.
Metro-North said Sunday that crews made significant progress this weekend in rebuilding 1,500 feet of damaged track. They said they expect to have the second track back in service following Monday’s AM peak service.
The railroad says all trains are running with scattered delays of up to 15 minutes until 10 p.m. After 10 p.m., bus service will connect commuters to shuttle train service.
Service is expected to resume on Metro-North’s Hudson line in time for the Monday morning commute, following a suspension triggered by a freight train derailment Thursday night. The transit agency said delays were possible for the morning rush hour.

Riders who use Metro-North’s Hudson Line had a tough Friday commute and traveling on the rails over the weekend was expected to be rough as well.
