NEW HAVEN – A transformer fire is causing delays along Metro-North’s New Haven Line, railroad officials said Friday morning.
Marjorie Anders, a spokeswoman for Metro-North, said because of the fire, which was reported Thursday night, there is no electricity in the New Haven yard or on the main line between New Haven and Milford.
The first train out of New Haven, the 4:11 a.m., was cancelled. Remaining trains will operate as scheduled but on a diesel shuttle. The shuttle will go as far as Bridgeport, where passengers will board an electric train for the remainder of the trip to Grand Central Terminal.
Anders said Metro-North expects to continue using the shuttle system through the morning commute.
