Yesterday, a top Metro-North Railroad engineer acknowledged to federal regulators probing two train accidents that crews were behind in maintenance.
This was at a hearing before the National Transportation Safety Board. The hearing continues today. Find the NTSB page on the investigation, including a link to a live stream of the ongoing hearing, here.
The accidents took place in May in Connecticut along the New Haven Line, which runs through Westchester’s Long Island Sound shore region. The tracks are also used by Amtrak along its Northeast Corridor, the national railroad’s busiest and most profitable line.
