PELHAM, N.Y. (AP) — A suburban commuter is still steaming over the 90 minutes she spent on a train stranded in a Manhattan tunnel.

Ellen Albert of Pelham was among the thousands of Metro-North passengers affected Thursday night by a 2-hour power failure.

When her train finally was returned to Grand Central Terminal, the station was wall-to-wall with people.

William Castro of Pelham also stuck in a tunnel. Complains Castro: "Pay more, get less."

Will McDonald of Cortlandt was stuck on a train for nearly an hour. He says railroad workers suggested passengers seek information on the Internet.

The railroad issued "profound apologies." It said conductors did their best to share whatever facts were known.

On Wednesday night, nearly 200 passengers were stranded without heat for about two hours on a train in Connecticut.
