    Today I heard the on scanner the train operator of N train announce the incident at 20av. I can’t day exactly what I heard but I will say say he sounded very upset 😢 .Also I happenend to be going to 86st on R line when the Jay St incident occurred . At Atlantic Platform was packed ! I was first thinking why not run some trains local but it’s very hard to do that since they have to stop at DeKalb and merge with the and . One went local 2 ‘s cane went express . I took one and for heaven sake why do we have to wait 3 min to get into 36th st .Why dosnet the train operator announce himself by like 25th and then they will just give the lineup. I don’t understand. Especially with countdown clocks don’t the tower operators know what train is coming ?
  3. Today I saw a 4 train stopped by express track at Kingston because of a sick passenger at Utica.it was there for 10 min proboaly more like 20 then the train keyed by a red signal.my guess is they were going to connect the train with the next train and have everyone walk through the trains to exit at Utica. But I’m guessing it was over by the time it could be done.
  4. My problem is on some days about 10-15 are emailed. Is that considered a lot or it’s nothing?
  5. They seem to say either “mechanical problem” “brakes automatically activated” or “stalled train”. I think th best thing is “train with emergency brakes activated” that’s the real truth.
  6. I know I talk about this a lot But Does anyone think it’s happening way too much lately?

    It seems like the MTA has given up on the real time info for the Franklin Ave Shuttle.

    I don’t get why the N is express on 4th ave this weekend.Why merge on other tracks when just it and the R could be together all the way to Manhattan ?
  9. They have to write emergency brakes. And I want to know does this happens in other cities too?
  10. But it’s the truth they are the emergency brakes . You might be right though . Some people might think “what ? 10 emergencies a day”? The reality is its very little . They run 8000 trips i believe
  11. What does the average rider think when they see “ a trains brakes were activated” ? I would think “the MTA really needs to fix those trains!” They should write “emergency brakes” that’s a little better.
  12. It’s still going on. They are still blaming the issue on “train with brakes activated”.an hour later I feel they should say why brakes were activated for an hour plus 😊.
  13. But if the switch problem is at Hudson Yards can’t they run service to Times Square like regular (before the Hudson yards days)? Why do they have to terminate trains in Queens I don’t understand.

    Has anyone ever been on a train where the doors didn’t open at your stop? Tonight I was on a train and they said “this is - the next stop is “ but never opened the doors.in this case they did after but anyone ever witness doors not opening?
