iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Limited rail service resumes Tuesday afternoon between New York and Bridgeport, Conn., after two trains derailed last week.

Limited Amtrak and Metro-North commuter rail service resumes between New York and New Haven and full service is expected to resume Wednesday.

One of two tracks damaged when the trains sideswiped one another and derailed four days ago has been rebuilt and subjected to rigorous testing. 

Passengers should still expect delays as trains will run slower on the new sections of the track.
