NEW YORK (AP) — A freight train hauling garbage has derailed in New York City.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says service on Metro-North Railroad's Hudson line has been suspended. The line runs between Manhattan and Poughkeepsie (poh-KIHP'-see), 80 miles north.
MTA spokeswoman Marjorie Anders says 10 cars of the train derailed Thursday night between stations. She says the tracks in that section of the railroad were fouled. No trains are stranded because of the service suspension.
The train was moving garbage from New York City and had an engineer, a conductor and a brakeman. All three crew members are unharmed.
The MTA runs service in New York and Connecticut. It says bus service will operate to a station where customers can connect with shuttle train service.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
