MYFOXNY.COM -

The MTA says some Metro-North service is restored on the Port Jervis Line Sunday and other Metro-North branches to operate on Monday. Metro-North will operate a normal Monday morning rush hour serving 98% of all our customers.

Here are the list branches where service has been restored: 

PORT JERVIS LINE

Train service on the Port Jervis Line resumed today (Sunday) with a 4:24 AM departure from Port Jervis following a week-long suspension due to effects of Hurricane Sandy. Other Metro-North branch line service will resume on Monday.

There will be four trains in each direction on the Port Jervis Line making all local stops between Port Jervis and Secaucus Junction. Customers wishing to continue to Penn Station, NY can change trains in Secaucus. There is no service to or from Hoboken because of severe storm damage. PATH service also remains suspended.

NJTRANSIT, which operates the Port Jervis Line under contract with MTA Metro-North Railroad, announced the resumption of partial service late Saturday. Ordinarily there are seven trains in each direction on weekends and 13 on weekdays.

The four inbound trains will depart Port Jervis at 4:24 AM, 5:13 AM, 6:13 AM, and 7:13 AM. 

The four outbound trains will depart Secaucus at 3:52 PM, 4:54 PM, 5:53 PM, and 7:03 PM. 

This four AM peak and four PM peak schedule will hold during the week. Check mta.info or njtransit.com for departure times. 

Free supplemental bus service will commence Wednesday, November 8, to provide service in the mid-day, nights and on weekends. Buses will go from the Middletown Station to the Beacon Station and from the Harriman Station to Tarrytown Station for Hudson Line train service to Grand Central Terminal. Bus service will approximate the level of train service on the Port Jervis Line prior to Hurricane Sandy.  

The Port Jervis Lines serves about 2,300 customers each weekday.

The Newburgh-Beacon Ferry and the Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry also will return to service Monday morning to serve West-of-Hudson customers. The Newburgh-Beacon Bus from the park and ride lot at Route 17K, also will be in service.

In addition, any Metro-North commutation ticket (monthly or weekly) from the Port Jervis Line will be good for use at any Hudson Line station. Monthly and weekly tickets will be good through Monday, November 5.  

PASCACK VALLEY LINE 

Train service remains suspended on the Pascack Valley Line, Metro-North's other West-of-Hudson Line, because of severe damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. 

To help serve the 900 people who use the line each weekday, Transport of Rockland will beef up its TappanZee Express bus from the Palisades Mall to the Tarrytown train station, where customers can catch a Hudson Line train. Any Metro-North Pascack Valley commutation ticket will be honored from the Tarrytown station and all stations south of there.Monthly and weekly tickets will be good through Monday, November 5. 

EAST-OF-HUDSON BRANCH LINES 

On Monday, Metro-North will resume regularly scheduled train service on the diesel-powered Wassaic Branch at the northern tip of the Harlem Line, which serves about 900 people a day, whether commercial electricity has been restored in the area or not. If necessary, generators will be used to power crossing gates.

Also on Monday train service will resume on the Waterbury and Danbury branches in Connecticut. These two branches also operate using diesel locomotives and carry about 500 and 1,100 customers respectively each day.

Connecticut's New Canaan Branch, which still has severe tree damage to the overhead catenary wires, will be served by buses to Stamford for a connection to train service. Buses will operate 15 minutes before train schedule times. New Canaan trains that stop in Stamford will now originate and terminate in Stamford to provide a comfortable ride for the 2,500 people who use the branch each weekday.  

For train and bus schedule information, go to mta.info or call 511.

    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    Boaters in Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey are keeping an eye out for an unwanted visitor lurking underwater: a 14- or 15-foot-ong snake, possibly a green anaconda. Several people have seen the reptile, which has probably holed up in a drain pipe. Reptile specialists are also searching the lake for signs of the snake. So far no more sightings have been reported.
