Service to the Metro-North Railroad's Hudson line was suspended last night after a freight train carrying trash derailed in The Bronx. According to Metropolitan Transit Authority spokeswoman Marjorie Anders, ten of the train's cars derailed near the borough's Spuyten Duyvil section due to trouble with the railroad tracks. Fortunately, the suspension did not leave any trains stranded.
The MTA announced that bus service will transport passengers to a station where they can find connecting trains. Meanwhile, the exact cause of the derailment remains under investigation. This is going to spell hell for some people's morning commutes.
