A derailed 1 train stranded hundreds of passengers and disrupted subway service in Upper Manhattan Wednesday.

The derailment happened near the 125th Street station in Harlem, leaving service closed in both directions between 96th Street and 137th Street.

No injuries were reported, but officials said late Wednesday that the train could not be moved until they finished investigating the cause of the derailment.

Officials said late Wednesday that they hoped to have service restored by the morning rush.

Officials said more than 400 passengers had to be rescued from the disabled train.

"They pulled another train up to our train, and put, like, a board in between, and we walked from that car into the next train," said passenger Matthew Landy. "And magically, that was right, the end of the other train was right at the edge of the platform here. It was almost like it was planned."
