At least they admit it's a derailment, rather than saying "mechanical problems". But the email says "rail condition".

So when does the Spring '11 semster finish for you LRG? Up here almost all of the SUNY and many private colleges had wrapped up or had graduation day already.

 

Back to topic. Any update on this derailment? If this continues to the PM rush that entire Brighton/4th Ave coordiors will be a nightmare.

May 25th.

 

Hehe... I was thinking the same thing. That explains why the express buses were emptier yesterday. I know a few guys get on the X30 that are college students. I think the last day for me was around the 15th of May or so back in the day. :cool:

Why not just reroute (D) trains to the local track?

If the Derailmanet is at the beggining of the bypass where the switch that sends the Bravo down the Brighton Line...

 

You can see why now, right?

Derailed Train Causes Subway Delays

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

By WNYC Newsroom

 

There are subway disruptions this morning after a work train derailed just north of the DeKalb Avenue Station. Officials with the Metropolitan Transit Authority say one car of a four-car train came off the tracks as it was coming off the Manhattan Bridge. The train was carrying MTA employees, but there were no injuries in the derailment.

 

The agency said it's working to restore service prior to the Tuesday evening rush.

 

For now, B train service is suspended in both directions from the Brighton Beach Station in Brooklyn to the 145th Street Station in Manhattan. There are also delays on the A, C, D, F, N, Q, and R trains. Select C trains are running express between 59th Street and the Canal Street Station. Downtown D trains are running on the F line from West 4th Street to Coney Island. Downtown N and Q trains are running on the R line from Canal Street to the Dekalb Avenue Station.

 

Dierdre Parker, spokeswoman for the MTA, said work crews are on the scene, trying to re-rail the train. She said crews will then have to test the rails to make sure they are in working condition before the route can be returned to service.

 

She said passengers should continue to check the MTA website for updates.

They said on MTA.INFO Derailment and NY1 said Track condition/Police Investigation.

 

My morning commute, Fox 5 said "Mechanical Problems" at first also. Though as usual I checked mta.info anyway. Regular news usually cares less on transit anyway. Just the news and just traffic reports. We get it you don't like NY1.
