Bronx, NY
December 1st at 7:20am A seven car Metro North Push-Pull train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central derailed the two lead cars that were the CDOT Cab Car 6322 and five cars and the Metro North P40CH 225 fell on their sides west of the Spuyten Duyvil Station where The Hudson Line leaves the Hudson River and begins along The Harlem River. Allegedly the train had been travelling at speed as it took the curve between Hudson River and along Harlem River and that the ATC (automatic train control) did not cut in that would have slowed the train.

As a result of the derailment 67 passengers were injured and four passengers dead.

Hudson Line service was suspended to Grand Central. Service continued to and from Yonkers and Poughkeepsie. Special shuttle buses took passengers to and from Yonkers where connection was made with MTA Route 1 Transit Line at 242nd Street at in the Bronx where connections to Manhattan are made. Metro North tickets are honored on transit routes because of the derailment.

Amtrak Empire Service between Rensellear and Penn Station remained in service travelling at reduced speed through derailment area.

CSX had a garbage train derailment in the same area on another track back in July.
