Metro-North Service Update

An explanation for this morning's (Thursday Oct. 25) delays on the Harlem Line

The up to 30 minute delays you experienced on the Harlem Line during this morning's rush hour were caused by a broken rail just north of Crestwood that occurred at approximately 6:30 AM.

This incident took one of the two tracks out of service between Scarsdale and Crestwood causing congestion, as trains operated on a single track through the affected area.

Interim repairs allowed us to return the track to service with a temporary speed restriction at 8:20 AM. 

Crews continue to work on repairing the track, which is expected to be completed in time for the PM rush.

We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of this incident.
