Conn. gov.: Extra transformers for powerless rail
Thursday - 9/26/2013, 8:15pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) -- Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says authorities will try to use three transformers to restore partial power to a crippled track of the nation's second-largest commuter railroad.
Malloy made the announcement Thursday at New York City's Grand Central Terminal. He says the transformers will be brought in by New York-based utility Consolidated Edison.
A Con Ed spokesman says the high-voltage feeder line can carry 138,000 volts and requires 27,000 volts to power a train. He says the transformers will take power from residential lines.
Officials will test the transformers to see whether trains can run on their power.
The Metro-North Railroad line to New Haven, Conn., serves tens of thousands of riders.
A high-voltage feeder cable failed Wednesday at a suburban New York station, causing hours-long delays.
