Smoke at Grand Central cancels 7 train temporarily

A smoke condition caused the temporary cancellation of No. 7 train subway service to Grand Central Terminal Wednesday, New York City Transit officials said.


Service was disrupted for about a half-hour before being restored at 8:38 a.m.


Officials could not detail what caused the smoke condition and would only say that it was in the vicinity of Grand Central Terminal -- but not actually in the terminal itself.


It also was unclear if the smoke was the result of a track fire or some other blaze.


Service was suspended on the No. 7 line at 7:57 a.m. Express service was suspended between Main Street and Queensboro Plaza, while local service was suspended between Hunterspoint Avenue and Times Square.


Though service was restored at 8:38 a.m., officials said residual delays were expected.
