Lawmakers are demanding answers following a series of problems that disrupted service on Metro-North last week.

Close to 200 passengers were stranded on a train without heat in Westport Wednesday.

The next night, the New Haven, Harlem and Hudson lines were affected by a two hour power failure.

Metro-North has blamed that problem on a mistake made by a maintenance crew.
