HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) -- After Metro-North passengers were stranded twice in two days,  some strong words from Connecticut’s governor.  Governor Malloy says he expressed his anger and frustration this morning when he called the head of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority about Thursday night’s problems that stopped Metro-North trains for nearly two hours.

Malloy called it, in his words “totally avoidable, and frankly unfathomable.”  Malloy says he’s asking for a full explanation — especially since the problem was apparently caused by maintenance during a peak commuting period.

He’s asking the MTA to hire an outside authorty to advise the railroad on maintenance decisions,  and says he wants a face to face meeting with the CEO of the MTA and the new president of Metro-North as soon as he starts the job.
