The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says that service along the Hudson Line is currently suspended due to the derailment of a freight train in the Bronx.

The MTA says that 10 cars of the 24-car freight train, which was traveling northbound, derailed between the Spuyten Duyvil and Marble Hill stations Thursday night because tracks in that section were fouled.

The freight train was carrying garbage, according to the MTA.

None of the freight train's crew members were harmed.

The MTA says it's providing bus service between the Riverdale and Marble Hill stations to connect Hudson Line commuters to other train service.

The MTA suggested that customers take trains along the Harlem Line.

It was anticipated as of midnight Thursday that the derailment would impact morning rush service.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
