HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A series of problems forced delays for commuters on Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven line in Connecticut and the Harlem and Hudson lines in New York.

The commuter rail system said Friday morning a train with mechanical problems at the 125th Street station led to congestion and trains were rerouted. Mechanics and a rescue engine were dispatched from the Bronx.

A switch failure north of the 125th Street station in Manhattan also caused delays and forced some trains to be rerouted.

An unspecified track condition in the Park Avenue tunnel forced Metro-North to order trains to slow.

And another train set off an alarm, also in the Park Avenue tunnel, indicating a flat spot on a wheel. It was inspected, finished its trip to Grand Central Terminal and taken out of service.
