RENSSELEAR, N.Y. – Rail service has been restored at the Albany-Rensselaer Rail Station after an Amtrak train derailed in the Bronx Sunday morning.
Rail service between Albany and New York City was halted for several hours Sunday after the train derailed because the trains run along the same rail line.
The train in the Bronx derailed around 7:20 a.m. Service to and from NYC and the Capital Region was restored around 3 p.m. Sunday.
Some Albany train passengers arrived to the station early Monday morning to catch the first train back to NYC after their rides were cancelled Sunday.
Officials say riders should expect delays and crowded trains Monday as trains will be moving through the affected area at reduced speeds.
In addition, any riders who use the Metro North Hudson line that runs through from Poughkeepsie to the city is encouraged to use the Harlem instead or to work from home if possible.
