After copious delays and rider frustration, Metro-North's much-anticipated M8 cars made their inaugural public run on the New Haven Line Tuesday.
A train of six left Stamford at 10:30 a.m. bound for Grand Central Station, where it was scheduled to arrive at 11:46 a.m.
The first M8s, built by Kawasaki, were delivered to the railroad roughly a year behind schedule in December 2009 and have been in testing since.
The interiors of the cars were designed by Ridgefield's Cesar Vergara.
Patch will have more on this story shortly.
