A southbound (D) train derailed near the 81st and Central Park West station just after 1 p.m. on Friday, CBS 2 HD has learned.

 

Approximately two cars were derailed, said an MTA official.

 

Passengers are being loaded onto another train that pulled up behind the derailed one.

 

There have been no reports of injuries.

 

Please stay tuned to CBS 2 HD and WCBSTV.com for the latest on this developing story.

Service Alert

 

Posted on:2/13/2009 2:40:22&nbspPM

 

Due to a train incident at the 81st Street-Museum of Natural History Station:

 

There is no service on the (C) trains the entire line.

 

Far Rockaway/Lefferts Boulevard-bound (A) and Coney Island-bound (D) trains are running local from the 125th Street Station to the 59th Street-Columbus Circle Station.

 

Please expect delays in service on (A), (;) and (D) trains at this time.

Oh NO!!

 

If there is no (C) service, what would replace service along local stations along the A line between 168 and 145 and south of 59?

 

That's a LOT of stations to neglect? I suggest temporarily extending (E) trains to Euclid to cover the area, and run (A) local north of 125. Expect a lengthly cleanup.

Where does it say that? It only is running local 125-59.

The (A) is running as a Lcl from 168th ro Euclid as the PAS states

and mark did you get pics of the (E) trains via Central Park West cause I was on the (E) train and they announce some (E) trains are now via Central Park and the (D) is also local uptown too cause before I took the (E) it left on the uptown local track and they announce there's no trains running express in both directions between 145th Street and 59th Street

The (A) was going local in Brooklyn. There was a shortage of (A) trains going towards Queens so they used at least 2 (C) trains to go to Lefferts and Far Rockaway.

 

I took a (C) train out towards the Rockaways around 2:30.

How do you run an (E) train via CPW?

 

Manhattan-bound (E) has no way to access CPW without switching back at 47-50 St. (;)(D)(F)(V).

 

Northbound (E) via CPW would be possible, but some Queens station would lose service, especially if the (V) is out.

 

Also, traffic reports say the (D) is suspended 125-59. The advisories page says otherwise. Which is true?

Yes the only way for the (E) to get onto CPW is running uptown, at that point those trains would not be going to Queens

I doubt it was going fast....the timers are yellow along the way of that section!

 

Correct. The timers (although they supposedly clear at 40-45 in between 86th St & 72nd St) make trains go incredibly slow, so I think it might've been the track.

I read and watch these different news sources and they say Downtown or Uptown (D) train derailed at 81 Street, and some go on to say that the (;) is the line canceled. NBC News reported a uptown (D) derailed, but I may be wrong about that.

(A) is running (local uptown), (B) is running, (C) is suspended, (D) is running (local uptown)...

 

corrections the (A) and (D) is running local in Both Directions between W 145th Street and 59th Street but you are right that the (C) was suspended and the (B) was running

Luckily the G.O declared the (A) local in Brooklyn, or there would be tons of shut stations.
