Service will be back for morning rush.

Officials expect 98 percent of service to be restored to the commuter train line shut down following a fatal derailment in New York City.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday crews have been rebuilding about 800 feet of damaged track, clearing debris and removing overturned train cars following Sunday's crash.

The early morning accident left four dead and more than 60 others injured.

Cuomo says the Spuyten Duyvil station on Metro-North's Hudson Line has three tracks. He says the middle track was badly damaged and the track closest to the river was destroyed. He says while crews will fix those two tracks, limited service will be restored Wednesday morning on the third.

Cuomo warned riders to expect delays. He said the six morning trains that normally operate during peak hours would be combined into three.
