Mudslide Buries Metro-North Tracks - Seveal Lines Remained Closed

Mudslide near Ossining blocks Metro-North's Hudson line

Yet more days of rain in the New York Area caused damage here and there, like this tremendous mudslide carrying numerous trees down to the track along with associated mud. With the heaviest rain staying a bit to the East, Orange County received a good dousing but little to no damage.vs. just the other side of the Hudson,

The mud slide above -has buried a portion of the Metro-North Hudson Line train tracks. A homeowner’s backyard on Country Club Lane in the Archville section of Mount Pleasant is now on the tracks. As a result, Metro-North has suspended train service between the Croton-Harmon and Tarrytown stations. The commuter rail service is encouraging riders to use the fully operational Harlime Line.

There is no train service at the Philipse Manor, Scarborough, and Ossining stations.

Hudson Line service is reduced to hourly in both directions between Grand Central and Tarrytown, and between Croton-Harmon and Poughkeepsie. On Saturday afternoon Metro-North issued a statement saying “Very limited bus service is being provided between Tarrytown and Croton-Harmon.” No additional information was provided by Metro-North.
