Flooding on the tracks north of MNR's Garrison Station - different direction

At first light Tuesday, Metro-North dispatched diesel-powered patrol trains on all three lines, Hudson, Harlem and New Haven, to inspect the tracks and remove trees along the way. Carrying track workers with chain saws, signal maintainers and power department personnel, the trains made slow progress as they encountered numerous trees snapped and lying across tracks and hung up in the overhead catenary wires that power the New Haven Line. In a some cases, the wires were town down. Elsewhere, heavy trees have crushed the third rails that power the Hudson and Harlem lines. On a positive note, shops and yards in New Haven and Stamford appeared to have been unscathed by the storm.
