NEW YORK (AP) Normal service is expected to resume on Metro-North's Hudson Line four days after a freight train derailed.

The railroad says all trains will be running for Monday morning's commute but there may be scattered delays of up to 15 minutes.

A freight train hauling garbage derailed between stations Thursday night.

The derailment affected service on the line that runs between Manhattan and Poughkeepsie (poh-KIHP'-see), 80 miles north.

The damage was so substantial that only one of two tracks in the area will be returned to service by Monday. Work will continue on rebuilding the other track before it can be returned to passenger service.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.
