L train, Signal Problems and CBTC

Recommended Posts

Due to ongoing signal problems at the 1st Avenue Station, please expect delays in (L) train service in both directions at this time.

 

Questions:1. how are there signal problems if it runs on CBTC? 2. Is a different procedure followed to fix the signal problems on the (L)?

You do know that CBTC is a form of signaling so that a "signal problem" can also be a CBTC problem of which they have been having ALOT of recently.

1. That's MTA speak for We're not going to get into details, but there's something messed up with CBTC in said section and if you want to really know more and aren't associated with RTO or MOW, learn about CBTC and try figuring it out from your end, otherwise you'll just refer to it as "signal problems", as you have for the past hundred years...

 

2. Absolutely, more or less.
