Sounds like that BXM4 express bus that checkmate has been asking to have slashed by the Grand Concourse will come in quite handy for today's commute. B)

I think Concourse and QJtrainmaster was suggesting ending BXM4 on the weekend and or most service via the Concourse.

The current B-train no longer has any exclusive stations, while the Q-train appears at stations that the B-train does not, and at this time serves as the only service on the Brighton line.

 

When the B-train serviced the West-End line (some time ago the B and D trains switched lines that they would operate on in Brooklyn, while the terminal names remained the same) during an event like this the B-train would simply become a West End shuttle to/from 36th Street and Coney Island.

 

It appears that the MTA is trying to divert trains away from the affected area, and at the same time trying to service its southern Brooklyn stations with what-ever trains/lines that are capable of running most or all of their regular route. The notes about the D-train being the obvious exception.

My (Q) was sent local in Manhattan on its way to Brooklyn. It skipped 28th Street, but stopped at all stops after 34th Street and at Lower Manhattan. Must have been quite a derailment.
