Senator calls for probe of NY's subway and train glitches, especially derailments and delays
22 July 2013

NEW YORK (AP) - Sen. Charles Schumer is blaming extreme heat for recent breakdowns and delays New York City's subways and commuter rails.

The Democrat held a news conference Sunday to ask the federal government to step in and find a solution to a problem he says is getting worse.

There have been at least three breakdowns in the past month. And slowdowns have affected Amtrak, the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North.

The senator says federal investigators should be put in place to protect the systems from heat-related glitches.

On Friday, a freight train derailed on Metro-North's Hudson line. Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders says heat may have been a contributing factor.

In May, a Metro-North train derailed in Connecticut, injuring 60 people.

New York (CNN) -- A passenger train derailment in New York on Sunday morning killed at least four people and injured 40 others, two sources familiar with the investigation and rescue told CNN.
The Metro-North train derailed at Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx, the New York Fire Department said.
About 100 firefighters responded to the scene.
At least two of the dead appeared to have been ejected from the train, one of the sources said.
Five passenger cars derailed in the accident, the New York Fire Department said.
The cars came off the track shortly after 7 a.m., fire officials told WCBS. They did not go into the Harlem River, which is beside the tracks, the station reported.
The derailment occurred near where a freight train derailed in July, WCBS reported. No one was injured in that accident.
Service was been suspended Sunday on part of the Hudson Line, Metro-North said on Twitter.
A passenger, Frank Tatulli, told WABC he thought the train was traveling faster than usual. He got out on his own, and suffered head and neck injuries, he said.
The train came off the tracks just as it was coming around a sharp curve.

Contrary to what the article currently says, it appears the entire train is derailed. Sympathies and prayers to all those involved.

4 Dead in Metro-North Train Derailment in the Bronx







Location of derailment

By J. DAVID GOODMAN and JOSEPH GOLDSTEIN
Published: December 1, 2013

At least four people were killed after a Metro-North Railroad train derailed Sunday morning in the Bronx along the Hudson River, officials said.

A total of 67 people were injured, including 11 critically, a New York Fire Department spokesman, Jim Long, said.

The derailment occurred when several cars of a train headed south from Poughkeepsie, N.Y., left the tracks about 7:20 a.m. near the Spuyten Duyvil station under the Henry Hudson Bridge on the Hudson Line, according to a Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman, Aaron Donovan.

At a news conference, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said the operator of the train was among the people injured and was being treated. The families of the four victims had not yet been notified as of midmorning, he said.

“It’s obviously a very tragic situation,” Mr. Cuomo said.

Three of the four people who were killed were thrown from the train during the derailment, fire officials said.

Any curve in the tracks would have speed restrictions, officials said. They said that investigators would examine the track, the equipment, the signal system and the operator.

Joel Zaritsky had just fallen asleep in the fourth car of the train when the train started to roll over and landed almost on its side, he said.

“People were screaming,” he said on Sunday morning as he was traveled to the hospital. “I found myself thrown to the other side of the train.”

Mr. Zaritsky, who lives in Poughkeepsie, and was heading to New York for a convention, said his hand was cut and he was very bruised.

“I still can’t believe it,” he said. “I’m very happy to be alive.”

The National Transportation Safety Board said that it was sending a team to New York to investigate the derailment.

Rescue workers from the Police and Fire Departments converged on the scene and lowered stretchers into the train cars, which were lying nearly on their sides; one car was just above the water.

Many local residents at the scene described being awakened by a prolonged crashing sound. Some said it was a quick series of booms and then they saw several train cars on their sides away from the tracks.

Michael Keaveney, 22, a security worker who lives in a co-op apartment building overlooking the crash site, said the crash awoke him and that when he looked out his window, “I thought I was still dreaming.”

Several crashed cars lay on their sides for about 10 minutes, he said, with no visible commotion. “They were trapped inside the cars,” he said of the passengers, until emergency responders arrived.

Firefighters arrived and climbed onto the toppled cars with ladders, opened the passenger doors and lowered ladders into the car and “started pulling people out,” said Kevin Farrell, 28, a hospital administrator who lives in a co-op building overlooking the crash site. He said he watched passengers being helped out with arms in splints or other minor injuries, and several of them were taken by stretchers.

Responders rushed the passengers to ambulances through a section of a chain-link fence that they had removed.

Councilman G. Oliver Koppell, who represents the area and was at the scene, said the accident was “certainly the worst one on this line.”

The train was the 5:54 a.m. out of Poughkeepsie, and was due at Grand Central Terminal at 7:43 a.m.

All service between the Croton-Harmon station and Grand Central Terminal was suspended, Mr. Donovan said.

Officials said that anyone who thinks they might have a relative involved in the crash should call 311, officials said.

Annie Correal, Emma G.Fitzsimmons, Corey Kilgannon and Michael Schwirtz contributed reporting.

New York has a major commuter rail problem. I never take Amtrak north past NYC anymore after all these recent tragedies.

NTSB finds that the train was travelling about 82MPH on a 30MPH curve.
