HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Train service is being suspended along the Connecticut shoreline as a major winter storm hits the Northeast.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy says the last westbound Shoreline East train is scheduled to leave New London at 7:38 p.m. Monday night. The last eastbound train is leaving New Haven at 10:15 p.m.

There will be no morning service on the line Tuesday.

Malloy said Monday the final train on Metro-North’s New Haven line is scheduled to leave Grand Central Station in New York City at 9 p.m.

He did not know when service on Metro-North might resume, but said with 2 to 3 feet of snow expected, he would not expect “too many trains” on Tuesday.
