(WTNH)– The blizzard is causing issues for not only cars, buses and planes, but trains as well. Amtrak has suspended service between New York City and Boston due to the blizzard conditions.
Mike Tolbert from Amtrak joined us on the phone earlier in the video above where he described the train situation.
Trains were running in the early morning hours Tuesday, but on a limited service. Snow patrol trains have been checking the rails to make sure the rails, as well as overhead power lines, are cleared.

They ask passengers if you do come to the station, check their website first to make sure your train is running.
Amtrak says they are continuing to monitor the railroad and have engineering crews stationed in case something does happen.
As for Metro-North, they are suspending train service in and out of Grand Central Station as of noon. Shoreline East trains are also suspended due to the blizzard.
