Transit-service cancellations out of New York City's Grand Central Terminal set off some major travel delays on Tuesday evening.
The Metro-North Railroad suspended service on its Harlem, Hudson, and New Haven lines for a time, advising customers to find alternative travel accommodations. Service has since resumed on the Hudson line, between Grand Central Terminal and Croton-Harmon, according to Metro-North, with delays of up to one hour expected.The New Haven line was also back up and running on a limited basis as of about 6:30 p.m. local time, also with delays of up to one hour, and reduced access to Grand Central.
The agency said there were multiple downed trees on the New Haven line and that trains en route would remain at stations until further notice.
The New Haven line was initially reopened with a 30mph speed restriction. It has since been lifted but there is severe congestion which impacts service between NYP-BOS.
The Hudson line has reopened between NYP-CRT, which means ALB service is still suspended. Trains are still holding at various stations along the route..
