Saw that on the news last night.
Too much rain and ran into a rock slide.
It took a while to get the crew out but did they.

The NYC was so concerned about a rock slides along the Hudson river that up to around 1974 there was a job just south Croton Harmon, NY that monitored a section of track for rocks. In all that time not 1 rock fell. You walked along the tracks about a 1/2 mile punched a clock and then walked in the opposite direction and punched another clock. 3 eight hour shifts, 7 days a week. I worked it one night, very boring.
