MetroNorth Hudson is moving “nearly normal” Monday as mudslides are cleared

Crews on Sunday successfully removed debris — trees, branches, dirt and stones — from railroad tracks along the Hudson River so service on Amtrak and Metro-North trains could resume Monday after a mudslide over the weekend halted service. .

The mudslide occurred at about 9:45 a.m. Saturday, shutting down all four Metro-North rail lines near the Scarborough Station in Briarcliff Manor, New York, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.

Late Sunday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it nonetheless expected “nearly normal” traffic on the Hudson Line at the start of the work week, as two of the four tracks affected by the slide had been cleared.
