Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

A fatal 12-9 at Brook Avenue suspended (6) trains from 125th Street to Hunts Point Avenue, with some trains going to 149th Street - GC and terminating there, leading to heavy delays on northbound (4), (5), and (6) service. There were also signal problems at 14th Street - Union Square on the southbound (6) line which also led to delays southbound. Overall, not a fun commute home...

 

Did get to see three (6) trains on the downtown local and express, and uptown express tracks at 23rd Street, so that was a little fun...

They've been having alot of switching problems there lately.

 

Due to switch problems at 34 St-Herald Sq, the following service changes are in effect:

There is no c.png service between 168 St and Euclid Av in both directions.

Southbound b.png and d.png trains are running on the a.png line from 59 St-Columbus Circle to W 4 St-Washington Sq then on the f.png line to Coney Island-Stillwell Av.  

Some southbound f.png trains are running on the e.png line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to Court Sq then on the g.png line to Bergen St.

Some southbound f.png trains are running on the e.png line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to  W 4 St-Washington Sq.

71 Av-bound m.png trains are running on the j.png line from Delancey St-Essex St to Chambers St and terminate.

There is no Metropolitan Av-bound m.png service from Forest Hills-71 Av.

Allow additional travel time.

Due to switch problems at 34 St-Herald Sq, the following service changes are in effect:

Southbound n.png trains are running local from 57 St-7 Av to Canal St.

Some southbound r.png trains are running on the f.png line from 36 St (Qns) to W 4 St-Washington Sq then running on the d.png line to DeKalb Av.

Expect delays to southbound n.png, q.png, r.png and w.png train service.

Allow additional travel time.

 

What are the odds that a switch malfunction would happen at the same station on two different levels.

Hung around Fordham for a little bit to see if there were going to be (6) trains on Jerome... Didn't see any.

I was caught in this. The c/o I had didn't know how to operate the train. He closed the doors without saying stand clear and he kept on opening and closing the doors even though the train did not leave for 30+ min.

First BIE on Lex that resulted in half of the entire IRT transportation system being on grid lock, and now today a 12-9? Jesus...

Presumably (B)   (D) and (M) trains went via 8th Avenue, and (F) trains went via the (G) line.

Following an earlier incident at 34 St-Herald Sqa.pngb.pngc.pngd.pnge.pngf.pngg.png and m.png train service has resumed with extensive delays. 

 

Anyone know what happened ? How can service be affected at both the 8th and 6th avenue lines ?

I don't know how this could have anything to do with 34th St, but at the same time, they were sending downtown (D) trains via 8th Ave and having them terminate at Jay St-Metrotech. This caused a huge logjam in the Cranberry Tunnel that I was stuck in the middle of. Why they didn't just have the (D) 's turnaround at WTC is beyond me. Took me an extra hour to get home is all I know...

Following an earlier incident at Roosevelt Island, a.pngc.pngd.pnge.pngf.pngg.pngq.png and r.png train service has resumed with extensive delays.

d.png Coney Island-bound trains run via the n.png from 36 St to Stillwell Av

There was a northbound train having mechanical problems at Roosevelt Ave. So they had northbound (F) trains running on the (Q) to 92nd St and northbound (E) trains running on the (C) to 168th St.

You mean 96th Street, right? If so, did the R160's have a (F) to 96th Street program?

I thought reversing a train wasn't allowed if it was in service, unless it was a disabled train.

You can receive permission from the dispatcher. but you can't just unilaterally reverse a train on your own.

how do they "reverse" a train? is it run in reverse or does the T/O simply go to the other end and move the train, how does that affect signaling, etc?

The T/O would go to the other end and operate in that direction. "Backing up" a train is a severe no-no.

Returned to the station to be rerouted? Sounds like a Northbound Train, because the switch is north of the station. Don't they put those red lights to prevent trains from going down the wrong track during track work?

Sounds like a southbound (F) train that erroneously got sent over to the (C). Probably dumped at Hoyt then reversed at Lafayette Av.
