NEW YORK -- A daring dog raced along a Metro-North train Tuesday -- for six miles from the South Bronx to Manhattan.

Running on a parallel track, she got past the lead car while the train was at a red signal, and found herself racing to keep ahead of it, according to the New York Post.

Twice she fell between the ties, and the train had to hit the brakes.

Passengers crowded at the front of the train worried for the brave canine.

The dog made it safely to the 125th Street station in Harlem, where MTA officials scooped her up.

The New York Post reports that the passengers cheered, ecstatic the pup was safe.

The dog, named Tie by MTA workers for all the railroad ties she ran across, is being cared for by Animal Care & Control and will be up for adoption unless her owner is found.
