FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Trains on the New Haven Line were operating at reduced speeds Friday morning, and customers may experience 10- to 15-minute delays due to the high temperatures, Metro-North said on its website and Twitter.

Commuters were advised to listen for announcements at the stations.

Customers traveling between New Haven and Stamford earlier had seen similar delays earlier due to an electrical transformer fire in the vicinity of Milford overnight.

Also, problems persisted on the Hudson Line in New York where service remained suspended until further notice due to Thursday night's freight train derailment in the vicinity of Spuyten Duyvil station. Train service is suspended Friday between Yonkers and Manhattan. For more information on that situation, visit this website.
