Queensboro Plaza Track Fire

Recommended Posts

Today, my brother was on-board a R62A (7) train when he heard on a walkie-talkie the T/O had there was a track fire at Queensboro Plaza. And yes, there was. They were held at Court Sq. and you could see the (7) train infront of us. He has some pics. When they approached the station, he saw dozens of workers, firefighters, and police there.

I was just passing through there about an hour and a half ago. Boy, I got lucky. :confused:

 

He was held there around 2:30.

Lots of track fires happening as of late. Hopefully this one isn't as bad as it sounds like, b/c when the (7)<7> is screwed, it's screwed for a long time.

That's because people keep throwing their trash on the tracks. The trash and the electricity from the third rail causes the trash to catch fire. Therefore the track fire would start disabling a section of the subway system.

Or something could've just gotten really hot... or overheated...

Nothing new. Track fires happen all the time due to the morons who can't find the garbage bin on the platform when it is right next to them.
