The suspicious object spotted on a train platform turned out to be a torque converter, an essential part of an automobile's transmission, Brucker said. No one knows who left it there, Brucker said.
Trains started to move just before 12:30 p.m.
It will take at least an hour for the delays to work themselves out, Brucker said. Some trains were stopped for least an hour, he said.
There was no way around the Rye station, Brucker said, and no trains were being allowed through Rye while the Westchester County bomb squad conducted an investigation.
All northbound New Haven Metro-North trains were held at Grand Central, southbound trains were held north of the area.
At 12:20 p.m. some southbound trains stopped north of Rye, between Greenwich and Port Chester stations, were reversing direction to offload passengers in Stamford, said Sam Borden, a Journal News reporter on a Grand Central-bound train out of Fairfield.
Conductors told passengers on the 10:20 a.m. train out of Fairfield that trains were being held "indefinitely" due to police activity, Borden said when they were stopped at Port Chester.
