Edit: Any (Q) 's to Astoria? 

How bad does it look now not to have 72nd built with three tracks as originally intended?

They had no Broadway service to 63rd street so I'm not sure it would have made a difference in this case.

72nd Street was supposed to be a short-turn terminal anyways. It should have been built that way to begin with because of the short-turn (N) s and rerouted (M) s and (W) s, let alone the few incidents already on 2 Av.

 

But they did have crossovers at 72nd Street for emergencies like this. Perhaps the outage rendered the entire line useless.

Due to an investigation at 36 St (QNS), the following service changes are in effect:

There is no m.png train service between Forest Hills-71 Av and Delancey St-Essex St in both directions.

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

Southbound r.png trains are running express from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to Queens Plaza.

Expect delays on e.pngf.pngj.pngm.png and r.png trains.

Allow additional travel time.

The funny thing is that  (brownM) trains actually went all the way to Broad Street this afternoon.

It would make much more sense for the (M) to go to 96th and 2nd in that scenario.

If you consider that a good amount of (M) trains were stuck in Queens, there may not have been enough trains to run the Brooklyn section of the line up to 96 Street.

I think the idea was to get some trains away from the logjam along 6th Avenue as well. With trains already delayed due to the incident at 36 Street, you don't want to add to the situation by utilizing the slow switches at Lexington Av-63 St.

What's going on in our subway? There has been a rail condition at 57th Street / 6th Avenue (F) and 34th Street / Herald Square (N)(Q)(R)(W) all day. All the signal problems, mechanical problems, and rail conditions have gone out of hand the last few weeks.

If trains ever had to be rerouted due to an emergency after the completion of phase 2, they’re going to have to run all the way up to 125 Street. Of course, it depends on the specific scenario, but with the cheapening and corner-cutting, phase 2-SAS looks to be a much less attractive option for emergency reroutes. 96 Street is still a reasonable terminal for short-turns. For much of the future subway, the only option for emergencies is simply complete termination of services.

It didn't involve the (G) half an hour ago, but now it does:

Sometimes the MTA says the (G) is running express, such as between Smith-9th and Church Av. Does this mean that trains will only stop at 7th Av which I believe is on the express track?

Sick on the tracks or off the tracks? It seems this sickness has infected the express tracks too. Actually, it seems the trains were running local towards Jamaica yesterday as they are today. Lack of redundancy cuts off service in the smallest of incidents.
