Following Building Collapse, Metro-North Service Now Running In and Out of Grand Central

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 01:06 PM

(Updated 5:20) All Metro-North service on the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines to and from Grand Central Terminal has been fully restored.

Service in and out of Manhattan had been halted for much of Wednesday following an explosion and building collapse next to Metro-North’s tracks running above Park Avenue.

The MTA says Metro-North structural engineers have verified the integrity of the Park Avenue viaduct and that "all four tracks have been restored to service after being cleared of debris, inspected for track and third rail integrity and approved for operations by Metro-North and the New York City Fire Department."

Passengers should expect delays, however:  trains will run at reduced speeds through the collapse zone to protect nearby employees and reduce vibrations as rescue and recovery work continues.

Uh ... duh. It's WEDNESDAY Morning. Not tomorrow.
Not yet. Unless you're making a prediction?

My first thought was gas.
My second theory was an anti-music radical-Muslim attack on the piano shop.
The Con Ed report supports the more prosaic explanation.
