Why commuters are standing on the train this week...

Metro North has taken 124 trains (one third) out of service to repair flat wheels. This has caused many commuters some inconvenience - there are fewer seats and overcrowding on the trains. The wet weather, falling leaves, caused slippery conditions on tracks causing train wheels to slip. Wheels flattten out. The wheels have to be made round again. Hopefully, commuters taking the train from Hartsdale and other train stations in Greenburgh will see some improvement next week.

Why wasn't Metro North able to phase in the work so Hartsdale commuters wouldn't have to stand?
