The worker, 58-year-old James Romansoff, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead

About 50 passengers were aboard the train, the 12:47 a.m. from Grand Central Terminal bound for Poughkeepsie (poh-KIHP’-see). The passengers were placed on another train and resumed their trip at 2:17 a.m.

The death is being investigated by Metro-North and MTA police.
