Most Amtrak service between Albany and NYC restored

Amtrak service from Albany to NYC mostly restored after mudslide

Amtrak service is mostly restored between Albany and New York City.

Most Amtrak service between Albany and New York City was restored on Monday after a mudslide in Westchester County caused service disruptions.

Amtrak says debris from the mudslide affected the tracks. All Empire Service trains plus some Ethan Allen Express, Maple Leaf Adirondack and Lake Shore Limited were canceled.

The mudslide happened at around 9:45 a.m. on Saturday. No injuries were reported.

Metro North’s Hudson Line service had been suspended between Croton-Harmon and Tarrytown because of the mudslide. Late Sunday afternoon, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that the service for that line has been restored.

She said crews have worked around the clock to clear 350 cubic yards of soil and debris and 250 cubic yards of rock and concrete walls from two of the Hudson Line’s four tracks. Work is expected to continue for days to clear the mud and debris from the remaining two tracks.
