MTA Metro-North Railroad today announced the restoration of limited northbound train service on the Hudson Line, starting today with the 6:15 p.m. train from Grand Central Terminal to Poughkeepsie. Southbound trains will continue to originate from Peekskill. The restoration of service comes just three peak periods after service had to be suspended on Sunday afternoon due to storm damage. On Wednesday, the Hudson Line will operate nearly full service, starting with the morning peak. 

Also starting Wednesday morning, Upper Harlem Line service will return to its normal schedule for Wednesday, with train service resuming to and from Wassaic. The restoration of service comes less than two days after service had to be suspended on the Hudson Line Sunday afternoon and on the Upper Harlem Line Monday morning due to storm damage.

“Metro-North crews have put forth another Herculean effort following an extreme weather event, clearing the tracks of fallen trees, high water, mud and debris. It is because of their hard work that we are able to restore service on the full Hudson and Harlem lines,” said Metro-North Railroad President and LIRR Interim President Catherine Rinaldi. “Hudson Line customers should check TrainTime before traveling, as we will run a modified schedule to allow for further storm clean up.” 

Metro-North crews worked since Sunday night to perform rehabilitation work on both lines. Crews cleared fallen trees, mud and boulders from sections of track where the rushing water had risen well above the rails. Crews will continue clean up along the Hudson Line as the railroad works to restore full regularly scheduled service on the line.
