Minor Derailment on the (A) Line

Recommended Posts

From ABC New York (WABC)

 

The wheel assembly of the last car of a southbound A train derailed in the area of West 81st Street in Manhattan.

 

The incident was reported just after 9 a.m. on Saturday. There were no known injuries. Passengers in the train are being removed to a train that is being directed to the derailment scene.

 

Southbound A and D trains are running on the local tracks due to the derailment.

 

Charles Seaton, Spokesperson for the Transit Authority says that it is unknown how soon before full service will be restored. The authority will also be conducting an investigation of the cause of the derailment prior to the restoration of service.

This derailment happened before, same station but on a (D) train. I thought 81 St had timers.

The timers clear at 30 MPH, the derailment still could have happened.

There is also this:

Service Change Posted: 12/22/2012 11:50AM

 

 

Due to a rail condition at the 81 Street-Museum of Natural History Station, downtown a.png and d.png trains are running local from the 125 Street Station to the 59 Street-Columbus Circle Station in both directions.

So the derailment is not minor.

Really? You're swearing off an entire line and fleet because of a derailment?

 

If we go by that logic, then shouldn't you hate virtually all cars and lines?

Oh this just in, it was a broken rail travelled over at a high rate of speed which made wheel come off, it wasnt the fault of the equipment

Looks like my boys are getting ready for retirement. Glad to see no one was hurt though.

 

Hey, the reason for the derailment was because of a broken rail, so you shouldn't be saying that...yet. ;)

 

And yes, glad to hear that no one got hurt.

"The car that put Pullman Standard out of business" The R-46 on the (A) Derailed today hmmm...

I wonder if the R46 had anything to do with it and not just the rails itself.

Not saying I hate the R46 or any other train I'm just wondering if the R46's also played a role in this.

I am also glad no one got hurt.

I've heard of capitals and punctuation. Have you? You are just like Depotofrelax and Chargerdodge09. Something's going on here... :ph34r:

 

Is this a problem with maintenance? This is not a coincidence.
