Metro-North's Harlem Line is operating full service between Southeast and Grand Central Terminal this morning. Close to regularly scheduled service is also being provided on the Harlem Line between Mount Kisco and Grand Central Terminal, and on the New Haven Line between Stamford and Grand Central Terminal.The added service made possible by continued progress by Metro-North crews to clear tracks of debris, inspect critical infrastructure and repair damaged components.
The Long Island Rail Road is operating limited hourly service for this morning’s rush on the Port Jefferson Branch from Huntington to Penn Station and on the Babylon Branch to Penn Station as work continues around the clock in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
