Switching problems are causing major delays on the Hudson Line, reports the Journal News. The trains are held up as much as an hour each way.
Trains were always receiving signals, [spokesperson Dan] Brucker said, but had to stop when five switches went down at 7:30, literally stopping the trains in their tracks.
Residual delays are up to an hour, Brucker said.
It has not been determined, Brucker said, why switches up and down the line were not receiving signals.
“Obviously this will and has had, a major impact on the commute,” Brucker said.
If you have to be jammed up on one of the train lines, at least the Hudson has those wondrous views.
