GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL (PIX11) – The MTA is optimistic they will have uninterrupted service on the Hudson line in time for the Monday morning commute.

Riders have been taking the train to Yonkers then bussing to Van Cortlandt park and taking 1 train since Thursday night’s derailment.  Ten cars of a freight train carrying garbage derailed south of Yonkers.  T

he MTA says it’s been working non-stop to clean up the mess and get the trains back on track and fix the damaged rails. D

an Calabrese of Yonkers told PIX11, “Thank God I don’t commute.”  He said getting into the city Sunday was a nightmare.

The MTA is urging riders to check or call 511 before heading out Monday morning. “When I called the MTA they were very helpful,” said Jennifer Milewski who told PIX her commute from Beacon wasn’t too bad.
