THE BRONX - Regular service has resumed for Metro-North commuters, five days after a train derailment in Connecticut.

The rush hour crash last Friday injured 72 people, and affected about 30,000 riders who rely on the service to and from New York City. Amtrak service between the city and Boston was impacted, but is also back on schedule.

Sixteen train cars had to be removed from the tracks on the New Haven line, which stops in the Bronx, and a fleet of 120 buses was used as one alternative.
