(AP) Temporary transformers have been installed to allow electric trains to operate from New Haven, Conn., to New York City on the sixth straight day of commuter rail delays.


Still, Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says Metro-North Railroad commuters can expect a "very reduced schedule" on Monday compared with a normal peak period. Trains are expected to run at 50 percent capacity on the New Haven line.


Regional park and ride areas are being established for access to Harlem Line trains in New York state. Added rail cars will handle the increase in the number of commuters.


Malloy says that combined with additional park and ride areas, the efforts will boost capacity to about 65 percent of normal rush-hour rail traffic.


Rail service was disrupted Wednesday when a circuit failed in Mount Vernon, N.Y.
