NEW YORK (AP) - Metro-North Railroad says the weather is to blame for delays of up to 30 minutes during the height of the morning rush-hour.

The railroad says a Harlem Line train became disabled at 125th Street in Manhattan at around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Icing conditions prevented it from drawing power from the third rail. That left one of the four tracks out of service between Mott Haven in the Bronx and Grand Central Terminal.

The railroad says the severe cold and ice have caused equipment and infrastructure issues throughout its system.

A weather-related power problem also was blamed Monday night after a Metro-North New Haven Line train was stuck for two hours in Westchester County. Passengers said they had no heat during the ordeal.
