So essentially theres no 6 Ave service

 

And you would be correct.

So the (:P, (C), (D)and the (E) all have to share one track?! I hope this all gets fixed in time for the evening rush.

There's more: Brighton Beach-bound (:P trains and Coney Island-bound (D) trains are now running via the (F) between West Fourth Street and Coney Island. Southbound (D) trains return to the Culver Line for the first time since 1967. No (V) trains and the station at Seventh Avenue-53d Street has been evacuated.

 

All this iis due to a substation fire and witnesses are reporting "heavy smoke conditions" are visible on Seventh Avenue.

 

The (:) and (D) are running via the (A) between 59th Street and West Fourth Street in both directions. (4) trains are not running between 149th Street and Utica Avenue.

I am supposed to meet someone on the downtown (F) train platform at West 4th St today. Is the (F) running on 6th Avenue at all? I may need to call the person and describe the service changes.

The (F)...is probably running normally, but I would check upstairs first. Let's hope your friend doesn't get caught in this mess.

Mark: I had gotten my information from NY1: Transit, but the MTA website has updated information which reports (:P trains are now not running in either direction. NY1 has a large story on their website.

But if this thing is on 53 St, how come the (E) is not affected? And how does the (4) relate to any of this?

 

And MAA 89 the (F) is not running in Manhattan. It's on the (G).

The (4) cancellaton must be a separate incident. And 7linefan is right: why aren't (E) trains affected but the (V) is? Must be just north of 47-50 if the (F) is also affected

Following an earlier incident (4),(7), (A) , (:P, (C), (D), (F) and (G) train service has resumed with residual delays.

 

 

man a huge g/o. Im guessing the last few trains that ran thru this g/o is still detoured, like the (F) via (G)? Anyone caught that?

Common possible issue: Transformer at substation 13 go boom. Most likely the oil inside of the transformer leaked out or overheated.

That was a pain in the ass! Took 30 mins for an uptown (F) train to arrive at Delancey Street, only to find out it was not going past West 4th....so I took the (J).... I saw a (B) train at Delancey and I was like wtf is going on?!
