Circuit Failure Delays Amtrak in Metro-North Area


NEW YORK (AP) — Amtrak says its trains are being delayed in areas served by Metro-North Railroad due to a Con Edison circuit failure.

The passenger rail system joined Metro-North Railroad, which said early Tuesday morning that service is extremely limited on the New Haven line between Stamford and Grand Central Terminal.

A spokesman for Con Edison says the railroad was doing work on the Mount Vernon substation when a feeder cable failed and a second feeder was out of service. The utility’s crews are on the scene.

Metro-North says trains will be very crowded and advises passengers to seek alternate transportation.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation reported that traffic is congested on a portion of Interstate 95 near Stamford. Earlier in the day, traffic was snarled in other areas of the Interstate.
