Signal have issues all the time but at least you can Key by them then again when CBTC acts up you can put the train in Bypass so who knows what really happen. Then been having CBTC issues the past few weeks.

I found out on Friday that 95% of the problem with CBTC is the train computers not the wayside equipment. So signal problem this time might have been a broke rail, or something along this line.

Interesting to know, I would have thought that wayside equipment would be more prone to failure since it is out side in the elements. Now, the problems with the train borne computers, is that die to vibration or steel dust?

I don't know about that one Sat 3 trains went BIE between Union Sq and 8 AV all at the same time that were in CBTC.

 

I guess thats a good think if it was a CBTC failure or malfunction instead of all trains speeding out of control.

I was at Union Square waiting on the (L) platform at around 4:35 and the delays were still apparent. Rockaway Parkway bound (L) trains were coming in packed from 6th and 8th Avenues because of the delays.

 

I took a quick shot of a train that most of us didn't fit in. B)
