Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

Apparently shuttle buses are on stand-by for the (2) and (5) north of E 180 Street, so IDK if we might be seeing more service changes later on or not.

Really is sad how it take nearly a whole line to tweet to them in order for them to notice that something this dangerous is occurring. 2 people apparently fainted from the smell.

 

Judging by the smell since I was near Lormier St earlier, it was a LOT of fuel...

There was a union rep at the site being interviewed, he said one of the booth agents along the (L) doing the overnight shift was so overwhelmed by the smell the person ended up calling out halfway through their shift.

If it started overnight when the (L) train is not running, no passenger would be able to report the problem until the morning anyway. Who knows what the (MTA) was thinking by not investigating the problem before the trains started running this morning...

I have so much confidence for the Cuomo's L train plan....

Imagine this happened when the L is in 20 minute headways. Pretty sure that would be a quick lawsuit.

Service Change  Posted: 02/12/2019  5:28PM

All NB (F) trains running via Crosstown ONLY will be making local stops in Queens.

So basically the switches were stuck to/from the local tracks. but how did the (R) get to Queens Plaza?

Looks like the Express track switch at 36 St/Queens Plaza was stuck to operate straight, so either one of the following happened:

 

1 . (M) cannot cross over to the local track going towards 71 Av

2. (M) cannot cross over to express from Queens Plaza going to Court Sq-23 St

3. (F) cannot cross from the express track Manhattan-bound to 63 St (all trains must go to 53 St)

4. (F) cannot cross from 21 St-Queensbridge to the Express; train would have to go local.

 

Its better to flip the (F)(M) in terms of the tunnels they use to get to/from Manhattan than have them operate on their respective tunnels (53 St/63 St) because then the (F) would then be stuck going local to 71 Av and getting stuck behind the terminating (R) trains, and the (M) would clog up the (E) by terminating at 71 Av. Flipping the (F)(M) at Roosevelt Av to their correct routes (or forced routes if going towards Manhattan) also reduces capacity overall.

 

The (R) was just delayed due to the new switching pattern

There is no (E) train service between Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer and Kew Gardens-Union Tpke and limited service in Queens past Queens Plaza while our crews work on a signal problem at Sutphin Blvd-Archer Av/JFK Airport.

See a station agent for a courtesy pass for continuing train or bus service.

Expect delays in (E) and (F) train service in both directions.

 

Based on Subway Time:

Some (E) trains are running express to 179 Street.

Some (E) trains are terminating at Forest Hills-71 Avenue.

Some (E) trains are terminating at Queens Plaza.

Some SB (E) trains are making local stops in Queens.
