PELHAM, N.Y. (AP) - The announcement that some train service was resuming prompted a Westchester County resident to head to his Metro-North station.

Jeff Austin of Pelham found the waiting room locked at around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday.

The electronic schedule board said the next train wouldn’t arrive until 12:36 p.m.

Says Austin: “That’s not cool.”

But he thought of a good use for the extra time: playing with his kids.

Another would-be Pelham commuter, Jim Healy, hadn’t heard that the railroad had shut down Monday night. He came to the station Tuesday hoping to board his regular 8:20 a.m. train.

Healy said he was “disappointed but not surprised” that snow would “mess things up.”

Healy took a 7-minute walk home - vowing this time to listen to transit reports.
