@teresalabarbera disabled Amtrak train in Milford area. All Westbound trains shut down right now.
Sounds like we are now blocking metro North trains out of New Haven
Broken down Amtrak,@MetroNorth won’t let us go around it, back to New Haven I go! Good thing Olympic hockey is on now…
Amtrak sucks too. But at least you can get a cocktail on board
