FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — A "slow-speed minor" train derailment near the station in Rye, N.Y., is causing big delays along the entire New Haven Line early Thursday evening, Metro-North said.

No injuries were reported in the incident, Metro-North said. The railroad was reporting delays of up to 55 minutes three hours after the incident, although some passengers have reported longer delays as trains move slowly through the area.

Also, train riders at Rye, Port Chester and Greenwich who want to travel westbound to Grand Central Terminal are advised to travel eastbound to Stamford to board a train.

The derailment, reported at about 5:15 p.m., involved several cars on the train and occurred east of the train station, behind the Avon building on Midland Avenue in Rye.

All of the train cars are upright, Metro-North said.

Train riders are advised to listen for announcements at local stations.
