Amtrak Service Restored in New York Following Metro-North Derailment

Amtrak service has been restored between New York City and Albany, N.Y.

Service to the Empire Line was temporarily halted after this morning's fatal Metro-North derailment in the Bronx.

Trains were back up and running around noon, but the Empire Line was re-suspended as a result of the ongoing NTSB investigation, according to Amtrak's Twitter account. All service was restored around 3 p.m. Sunday.

Metro-North says service on its New Haven line in Connecticut is not affected by Sunday's derailment on its Hudson line in New York City. Four people were killed and 63 were injured in the crash.

Amtrak runs along the same rail line where several Metro-North cars derailed.

The Connecticut rail service runs on a line separate from the Hudson line. It extends from New Haven to Grand Central Terminal.

Amtrak says service on the heavily traveled Northeast Corridor line between Boston and Washington is also unaffected.
