NEW YORK (PIX11) – A massive signal failure has stopped all Metro-North trains cold in their tracks, an MTA official confirmed to PIX11 News.

The failure has left the trains out of service on the New Haven, Hudson and Harlem lines.  According to the MTA, the computer system is down because of a power problem in the control room.

All trains are being stopped at the nearest station or before entering the station.  The trains apparently have light and heat, although some customers are complaining of the cold on social media.

Multiple tweets from passengers are complaining of long delays.
