(2) trains are now running to President Street from 241st Street. There's no service south of it.

(6) trains are also running between 86th Street and Brooklyn Bridge. Service between 86 Street and Parkchester remains suspended, and the MTA is encouraging using the BxM6 and BxM8 for service into Manhattan.

I'm hearing the 60th St, 63rd St, and 59th tubes suffered major water damage, as well as the entire QBL line. I wouldn't be surprised if service dosent come back by tommorow.

Isn't 63rd tube the (F) line? If so that tunnel should be fine as (F) trains are using those tunnels right now (terminating at 21st Queensbridge) wheres 53rd and 59th are still out.

Between 21st & 36th St specifically.

They should be now concentrating their efforts to pump water out of the 60 St tunnel. There is essentially no Broadway service in Manhattan. I also wouldn’t be surprised if a few years down the road, the remaining subway tunnels will need to undergo extensive rehabilitation similar to the Sandy recovery work done in the Manhattan to Brooklyn tubes

 

UPDATE: looks like the Queens-Manhattan trains are all rolling today. Service resumed as of 6:27AM. Now only the (4) and (6) remain out

Some Reroutes

(E) and (F) trains are delayed and/or rerouted while our crews perform track maintenance between ‌‌Queens Plaza‌‌ and ‌‌Lexington Av/53 St.

Some northbound (E) trains will end at 59 St-Columbus Circle on the (A) line.

Some southbound (E) trains are running along the (R) line from Queens Plaza to Whitehall St-South Ferry.

Some southbound (F) trains are running along the (G) line from Court Sq-23 St to Bergen St.

More signal drama on the Queens Blvd Line in LIC (where else?)…

Not to mention the big switch problem at Queens Plaza that borked the (E)(F)(M)(Q) and (R) lines on Monday evening rush. If these two frequently recurring examples aren’t strong cases to de-interline QBL, then what is?

Select (C) trains are being extended to/from Ozone Park-Lefferts Blvd.

I do not know why they can not just send the (CC) train outside to Lefferts and let the (A) train be the Mott and Beach 116 train.

It's because the (C) has to merge with the (A) yet again between Euclid and Rockaway Blvd. The (A) and (C) merge between Hoyt-Schermerhorn and Canal St which limits both lines to how much they can send their trains. Extending the (C) would result in the same exact issue and wouldn't really benefit anyone. Only reasons to extend the (C) is if something happens to the (A) and in this case pretty justifiable. During normal operations, it shouldn't because the added merge would defeat the purpose of the (C)'s extension entirely because you limit (A) trains further.

Yeah, but we are talking about an emergency weekend night situation.

Hmmm...🧐

Part Suspended

(7) trains are temporarily suspended in both directions between 5 Av and 34 St-Hudson Yards while our crews work to correct a switch malfunction south of 5 Av.

34 St-bound (7) trains will end at 5 Av and return Main St-bound for service.

Consider taking the (2) train or the M7, M32 or Q32 bus or see buses near you at bustime.mta.info.

See a station agent for a free courtesy pass to continue your trip.

Yikes to that typo.

Hilariously, it's also a bit redundant, given the Q32's history...

(A) service is suspended between Beach 25 St and Far Rockaway-Mott Av in both directions while NYPD conducts an investigation near Far Rockaway-Mott Av.

Alternatives

For service to/from Far Rockaway-Mott Av, transfer to/from Q22 buses at Beach 36 St. Follow this link for a map of where Q22 buses stop.

LIRR is allowing MetroCard holders and OMNY users to board Far Rockaway Branch trains for no additional charge between Far Rockaway and Penn Station. See schedules on our website.

NYPD swarmed the area around Far Rockaway station earlier. (from what I heard) This incident was the result of someone getting shot at the station.

It's been a while....

Part Suspended

Brooklyn-bound (2)(3)(4)(5) service is temporarily suspended while we work to move a train with a mechanical problem near Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr.

Consider taking an (A)(C) or (Q) train.

Brooklyn-bound (2)(3) trains will end at Rector St, then turn around for uptown service.

Brooklyn-bound (4)(5) trains will end at Bowling Green86 St, or 125 St, then turn around for Bronx-bound service.

Couldn't the (4)(5) have been extended to Borough Hall?  At least there, you could transfer to the (R) at Court Street. 

Also, I'd have had some (4) and (5) trains end at Brooklyn Bridge if possible and used City Hall loop to turn.
