Metro North testing rails for metal fatigue

A specialized Sperry Rail car is running on Metro North tracks between Southeast and Wassaic as part of ultrasonic rail testing. The railroad uses this high-tech piece of equipment to detect defects and metal fatigue inside the steel rails.  Metro North says the equipment identifies issues before they become major problems.  The testing means there's substitute bus service for off peak trains on the Wassaic branch through tomorrow.
