STAMFORD, CT (AP) -

Commuter rail service between Stamford and New York's Grand Central Station has resumed, but the first trip after Superstorm Sandy was plagued by delays and other troubles.
    
Passengers left Stamford early Thursday morning. Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said train service was delayed because not all tracks were in service and other storm-related problems.
    
However, passengers are riding for free. Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo authorized the Metropolitan Transit Authority to waive fares Thursday and Friday to help ease recovery from the storm.
    
Shore Line East commuter rail service, between New Haven and New London, also was set to resume Thursday morning.
    
Amtrak says it also will resume limited service between New Haven and Springfield, Mass.
