Service Alert

 

Posted on:12/24/2009 10:59:03 AM

 

Due to switch problems in the Concourse Yard, Coney Island-bound (:) trains are running on the local track between the Bedford Park Boulevard Station and the 145th Street Station.

 

Please expect delays on the (:( and (D) trains at this time.

 

1. Why are switch problems in the yard affecting service?

2. Why don't (D)s switch to the express at 170th, for example?

3. This has been going on for four hours already.

What's up?

 

 

EDIT: To not make a new thread:

Due to a train with mechanical problems at the Houston Street Station, Brooklyn College-bound (2) and New Lots-bound (3) trains are running on the local track between the 72nd Street Station and the Chambers Street Station.

 

What happened to the switch at 42-Times Square???

No (B)ravo Put-ins was able to leave the Yard is my guess..

Didn't something like this happen on the (7) a few years ago when a train died on the ladder in Corona Yard?

Or was it when a R62A made an "add" on the mainline to another R62A?

 

:confused:

 

You mean crash or what?

 

Also, what's up with the 2nd alert about the (2)(3) scraping the wall in uptown? Does the switch @ 42 not work or something?

After hearing some stories from some of the people I know who have been down there for a while now, nothing is too surprising. You ever hear the story of the T/O who gave a play-by-play has a "yellow piece of MoW equipment" rolled down hill and collided with his train and derailed?

I heard similar stories, not sure if it was that one...

But the computer still has to change its regular routine to reroute (1)(2)(3)s @ 96 and at Chambers. So tell it to reroute @ 42 instead. Or maybe it can't?:confused::confused:

 

Think of it this way..

 

When your computer "crashes" what happens??

 

I will leave it @ that....:)

A diagram of a signal doesn't help me realize what's wrong with switching the trains @ 42.:confused::confused::confused::confused:

 

If the HomeSignal in said picture is against you(Red Over Red) can you move the train?

 

No you cant the switch cant move the Signal wont change..

 

Who controls the Switches and Signals again???

 

This lesson has concluded... :)
