Late Night Busing of Hudson Line Needed For Track Rebuilding

Metro-North Railroad today resumed normal Hudson Line train service using just a single track as ongoing recovery and repair work shifts to overnight hours following a major freight derailment last Thursday in the area just west of the Spuyten Duyvil station.

Beginning tonight at 10 PM, the Hudson Line will be shut down between Grand Central Terminal and Yonkers Station.  The closure will give track gangs space to work in what is a severely constrained location in a narrow rock cut.
