Train engineer says the brakes did not respond when he applied them at a sharp curve.

–The Poughkeepsie train station, which is normally jammed with commuters, was desolate Monday morning as riders sought alternate transportation into New York City because of Sunday’s deadly train derailment that left a critical stretch of commuter rail impassable.

Metro-North, which normally carries 26,000 weekday riders, began running bus service on Sunday for stranded passengers, allowing them to take a bus from Tarrytown, on the Hudson Line, to White Plains, where they could pick up a Harlem Line train headed to New York City…
