NEW YORK (PIX11) —  A computer glitch stopped Metro-North commuters in their tracks and stranded them for hours.

Trains were up and running for the morning commute but trains were delayed.

Temporary power was restored around 9:30 Thursday evening after all three Metro-North lines were suspended.

Grand Central Terminal prides on having one centralized command center for power and no back up system.

Delays continued into the Friday morning commute.

Just a day before about 200 passengers were stuck for two hours on a Metro-North train without heat in Westport, Conn.

The problems plaguing Metro-North leave some people wondering if it’s time for a renovation.

In May, a Metro-North train derailed in Bridgeport, Conn., and collided with a passing train.

In July, a freight train derailed in the Bronx.

And in December, four people were killed when another Metro-North train derailed, also in the Bronx.

Commuters and state leaders are calling Metro-North a broken system that needs repair immediately.
