Metro-North explains morning delays

An edited press release from Metro-North Railroad:

The 10-15 minute delays you experienced this morning (Wedneday, June 15) were primarily caused when a Hudson Line train departing Grand Central Terminal became disabled at 125th Street at approximately 7:48 AM.

This took one of four tracks out of service in this critical area, limiting our operating flexibility and causing congestion. A rescue locomotive was immediately dispatched and was able to tow the disabled train out of the area by 8:43 AM.

Compounding the problem were two medical emergencies at 125th Street Station on two separate trains at 7:53 AM and 8:14 AM. These resulted in a second track being taken out of service at the station during the same time period.

We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced as a result of this service disruption.
