(AP) The nation's second-largest commuter railroad will provide extremely limited train service on its line serving the Connecticut suburbs of New York City after a broken circuit slowed service to a near standstill.

The Metro-North Railroad said in a statement Wednesday that hourly train service to and from Grand Central Terminal in New York City to Stamford, Conn., will make all local stops for the rest of the day.

Metro-North says the service plan can accommodate just 10 percent of its regular ridership on the line to New Haven. It is urging customers to expect crowded stations and find alternative service.

The railroad says that at Stamford, commuters can connect to eastbound trains that are also making local stops to New Haven.

Metro-North says it is developing a scheduled for train and bus shuttle service for Thursday morning.
