Metropolitan Transportation Authority crews will work through the weekend to remove a cargo train that derailed on the Hudson line near 225th Street in the Bronx Thursday night.

The MTA says that limited Hudson line service will continue to operate between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers, and buses will continue to take passengers from the Yonkers station to the Van Cortlandt Park-242nd Street subway station, where the 1 train will take them into Manhattan.

Hudson line tickets will be honored on the Harlem line, according to the MTA.

The MTA hopes to have train service back on track by the Monday morning commute.

Ten out of 24 cars of a freight train hauling garbage jumped the track Thursday night just north of the Marble Hill stop, on their way to the Spuyten Duyvil station.

No one was injured.

Officials are looking into the extreme heat as a possible factor for the accident.

Many commuters relied on the Bronx's buses and 1 subway line for the Friday morning rush.
