Metro-North Train Jumps the Tracks



    Metro North is adding extra trains for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

    A Metro-North express train was brought to a standstill on Tuesday night in Cos Cob when the front two wheels jumped the tracks while going through a swtich.

    Metro-North officials said up to 600 people were onboard the Grand Central to New Haven train when it derailed. Passengers were eventually transferred to other trains. 

    Fixing the problem requires a crane to lift the train back onto the tracks.

    The problems tied up Metro-North trains up to an hour Tuesday night.
