The Metro-North derailment in the Bronx does not appear to have an effect on the New Haven line, thus far. Our transportation reporter Martin Cassidy is working the story. We’ll of course be asking whether this could happen here in Connecticut too.

Television news reports are saying up to four dead and 48 injured.
