THE BRONX - The commute for some Metro-North riders is finally getting back on track nearly two weeks after a freight train derailment.

The railroad has resumed its regular peak AM service on the Hudson Line, but officials warn that there will still be some scattered delays.

Service had been shut down after 10 out of 24 cars toppled over near the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx. Trains were not operating south of Yonkers, forcing many passengers to take shuttle buses and the subway.

Crews have worked around the clock, repairing up to 1,500 feet of damaged track over the weekend.

The cause of the derailment remains under investigation.
