THE BRONX - MTA officials say crews will be working through the night to clear tracks on Metro-North’s Hudson Line following the derailment of a garbage train Thursday night near the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx.

The derailment has suspended service on the Hudson Line south of Yonkers, causing riders to take a labyrinth of buses and subways to go between Grand Central Station and Yonkers.

MTA officials said these trains typically carry 12,000 riders to and from the city on a Saturday, but by 4 p.m. today, only 3,000 riders had been accounted for.

The MTA says it is hoping to have full service restored by the Monday morning rush.
