Amtrak service west of Albany to be restored

Posted: Updated:

FONDA, N.Y. (AP) - Amtrak service west of Albany is almost back to normal after being interrupted by a massive freight train derailment last week.

CSX railroad crews and contractors worked around the clock to clear wreckage and replace damaged tracks after the derailment Thursday morning near Fonda, 35 miles west of Albany.

Amtrak service was disrupted by the accident, with several trains cancelled and others operating with alternate transportation between Albany and Buffalo.

Amtrak says it's working to restore full service by Tuesday. On Monday, the Lake Shore Limited, Maple Leaf and Empire Service trains 281 and 284 will operate through the affected area, subject to delays.

Empire Service trains 280 and 283 will have chartered buses taking passengers between Albany and Syracuse.

    The idea is grand: to take the 7 train and connect Queens to Manhattan to New Jersey. But as with all these massive projects, the chorus gets quiet when asked who will to pay for it. While business interests announced plans of an economic impact study, no one has even a ballpark number for a price tag.

    HELMET VIDEO: Cyclist wipes out on taxi door

    With a camera mounted to his helmet, a cyclist headed northbound on 4th Avenue in Manhattan. As he neared East 14th Street, the taxi door swung open and the cyclist slammed into the door and went down. But it's the aftermath where things got weird in an "Only in New York" kind of way as the blame game started. The cab driver was upset because he said his door was damaged.
