Commuter Group Says Customers Should Be Reimbursed By Railroad For Lack Of Servce After Blizzard

Metro North plans to rseume a regular weekday train schedule Wednesday morning after the blizzard forced changes in train schedules.

The railroad says its new M-8 cars have been functioning well in the snow,  as have the oldest,  M-2 cars,  which have had “critical system” replacements.  But about two-thirds of the M-4 and M-6  cars  –which have not had the upgrades —  are in the shop because of high voltage electrical failures.

The president of the Connecticut Rail Commuter Council,  Jim Cameron, says a lot of riders lost out on their weekly or monthly commuter tickets, especially on the branch lines.  And he’s calling for some sort of compensation for them.
