STAMFORD - Commuters on the New Haven Line say they're eager for the end of the work week after massive service delays created unexpected travel headaches.

Many riders were forced to take the Harlem and Hudson lines to get into New York City. Others stood on packed platforms at Stamford and other stations to wait for a limited number of diesel trains to pass through.

Students who rely on Metro-North to get to school also say they're relieved, but realize similar problems are bound to bleed into next week.

Some businesses at the train station say their sales have taken a hit since the outage began Wednesday.
