Metro-North releases report on stranded train

Metro-North and state officials met with angry commuters yesterday to discuss the railway's response to a mechanical issue that left a train stranded for 45

WESTPORT - Metro-North and state officials met with angry commuters yesterday to discuss the railway's response to a mechanical issue that left a train stranded for 45 minutes in Westport in triple digit temperatures.

Officials say Metro-North has already come up with an emergency plan in response to last month's delay.

Last night at Westport Town Hall, commuters voiced their concerns and explained what they think needs to be changed.

Officials say the main issue is not the mechanical problem that left the train stranded, but the lack of communication between the railroad and passengers.
