Amtrak, Metro North To Resume Full Service Wednesday

Transit authorities say commuter rail service in Connecticut is expected to resume in full by rush hour Wednesday morning, five days after a derailment and crash injured scores of passengers.

Metro-North said Monday that track rebuilding has progressed quickly. About 100 workers have been on the job around the clock since Saturday night when federal officials completed their initial investigation.

Amtrak expects to resume full service between New York and Boston on Wednesday.  Limited service has been available between New Haven and Boston since Friday.
The resumption in rail service is sure to cheer commuters who struggled Monday to find alternative transportation, using shuttle trains and buses and their own cars. State officials nervously watched heavy traffic on Interstate 95 and the Merritt Parkway, two major arteries in southwest Connecticut.

A shuttle train from New Haven to Bridgeport with a bus connection to Stamford where customers can board a train for New York will continue Tuesday.
