THE BRONX - Most Metro-North riders have returned to their normal commute just three days after Sunday's deadly derailment.

The Hudson Line is operating at more than 98 percent of regular service for the first time since a speeding train jumped the tracks near the Spuyten Duyvil station, killing four people and injuring 63.

The railroad says one of three main tracks damaged during the accident is back up and running, but commuters should expect scattered delays of up to 15 minutes due to limited track capacity and crowded conditions during peak hours.

Many riders say they didn't expect the trains to get back on schedule so quickly.
