MTA Metro-North Railroad is advising northern Harlem Line customers to prepare for the possibility of delays and cancelations during this evening’s rush hour as crews attend to a disabled train north of Hawthorne. At 11:58 a.m., a southbound six-car train struck a tree that had fallen across the tracks during high winds this morning. As a result, the first set of wheels of the first car came off the track. There were no injuries.
Crews are working to re-rail that set of wheels and inspect and repair a stretch of about 100 feet of track that were damaged in the incident.
