MTA Metro-North Railroad announced that starting Wednesday morning, Upper Harlem Line service will return to its normal schedule, with train service resuming to and from Wassaic. The restoration of service comes less than two days after service had to be suspended Monday morning due to storm damage.

“Metro-North crews have put forth another Herculean effort following an extreme weather event, clearing the tracks of fallen trees, high water, mud and debris. It is because of their hard work that we are able to restore service on the full Hudson and Harlem lines,” said Metro-North Railroad President and LIRR Interim President Catherine Rinaldi.

Metro-North crews worked since Sunday night to perform rehabilitation work on both the Harlem and Hudson lines. Crews cleared fallen trees, mud and boulders from sections of track where the rushing water had risen well above the rails.
