Service was suspended on the New Haven Line this afternoon when some debris on the pedestrian overpass at New Rochelle station was blown about by those brutal winds.
The flotsam crashed into a train around noon, reports the Journal News, and short-circuited the overhead catenary wires.
“I heard a crash that sounded like metal moving and they told us to get out,” [Port Chester resident Stacey Harris] said. “It wasn’t terribly alarming, but a lot of us were confused as to what was happening.”
Service is expected to be normal for the evening commute.
