Lana Bellamy reports in the Times Union that Metro-North Railroad resumed rail service in both directions along the Hudson River with a few schedule modifications, after damaging floods suspended several routes. Gov. Kathy Hochul said, “The trains are back,” July 12 at Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Flash flooding moved trees and heavy boulders on to parts of the tracks and rain washed out others in the Hudson Valley after severe storms July 9 and 10. Metro-North temporarily suspended service to make repairs. On July 12 just five trains were canceled and the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry service also resumed. Amtrak also returned service between New York City and Albany on July 12. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
