The Spuyten Duyvil Metro-North Railroad station serves the residents of the Spuyten Duyvil neighborhood of the Bronx, New York via the Hudson Line. Trains leave for New York City every 25 to 35 minutes on weekdays. It is about 10.4 miles from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is about 23 minutes.
During 2013, two trains derailed near the station. A freight train hauling garbage lost nearly half its cars in July between Spuyten Duyvil and Marble Hill, requiring four days to clean up before one of the tracks could be reopened. In December, a passenger train derailment north of the station resulted in four passenger deaths (the first in the railroad's history) and 75 injuries.
The station has two high-level platforms. Northbound trains utilize an eight-car-long side platform, while southbound trains use a four-car-long island platform. Directly east (railroad south) of the station, Track 4 merges with Track 2. Directly west (railroad north) of the station, Amtrak's Empire Corridor service merges with the Hudson Line.
