Those (E) to Eucild were actually running via the (A) line in BK and ended at Euclid Ave.

That's nice. Question, did they have it signed it up as a (E) or (A)?  Because if it was, you would have had a Cuomo'd R-160 (A) train, and I Don't think that's happened yet...

There was two (E) trains that got rerouted  and I was on the one before the Cuomo set which was signed up as " (E) last stop" both ways along the portion it was running on Fulton Street, the Cuomo set was signed up as the (E) as well going Euclid bound, IDK about JC bound.

Was fun riding the 160s on the Fulton Street express, at some point between Hoyt and Nostrand Ave just train started swaying back and forth and I heard the trucks bumpin' and knockin' down below, quite fun, never been on a 160 that did that before, wonder if the 179s do the same on the same stretch of track.

 

 

The (C) was jacked up as well as my express (E) passed like 4 Euclid bound (C) 's between Hoyt and Euclid 

That must've been a pain for the T/O's and C/R's working the (E) out of Jamaica Center. Just imagine you're on your last trip before you get to go home, then, out of nowhere, you're told you're going down Fulton Street with the (A) and (C) to Euclid Avenue. They all probably had to make an extra trip to get their trains to Jamaica Center too.

Southbound  (A) trains will end at Euclid Av.

Some southbound (A) trains will end at Chambers St.

These service changes are because of a sick passenger at Grant Av.

(L) line is jacked up right now... well the outdoor portion at least, train took 20 minutes to go from Broadway Junction to sit between Atlantic Ave and Stutter Ave, where I'm currently stuck at. C/R said it was an CBTC failure causing the delays, also not ONE 8th Ave bound (L) passed me in those 20 minutes.

As part of our winter weather plan, some trains will now be stored underground on select tracks, causing  (6) express trains to run locally from 3 Av-138 St to Parkchester.

In total, it took my (L) train about 45 minutes to travel from Broadway Junction to Rockaway Parkway, a trip that normally takes about 10 minutes.

Someone caught it and posted it on Youtube. Apparently there were some people waiting at 149-Grand Concourse and they all just let one of the trains go mostly empty. At least one of those (3) trains ended up going express after 3 Avenue and terminated at East 180th Street.

Isn't that just normal service?

The normal shuttle at that hour runs both tracks, both directions.

(L) trains are running with delays in both directions because of signal problems between Broadway Junction and Canarsie-Rockaway Pkwy.

Passengers boarding at Broadway Junction should consider using (A),(C),(J) or (M) service.

Passengers boarding at Livonia Av should consider using the nearby Junius St station for (3) service.

We are doing our best to repair them overnight to be back for the morning rush, but if possible leave some extra time or try an alternate route.

I wonder if switches would experience less problems if they weren’t built on or in the vicinity of curves.
