Spokeswoman Marjorie Andres said service was suspended during Friday’s morning rush after a downed overhead catenary electric line blocked three of four tracks in the vicinity of Cos Cob, Connecticut.
She said it appears that a contractor who was loading railroad ties overnight hit the wire with a crane.
The catenary line supplies propulsion power to the trains.
Repair crews responded to the scene and service was restored in both direction shortly after 8 a.m. Riders should anticipate delays of 30-60 minutes.
