I received an e-mail from my sister this morning alerting me to a 7 train service disruption. I was not around to post an entry about it but I’ll bring it up anyhow. The service disruption was the result of two trains bumping into each other as they were leaving Corona Yard on their way to Flushing-Main Street to go into passenger service. 1010 Wins had a brief report:
NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Service on the 7 train line was disrupted after two trains bumped early Thursday.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says two trains were headed from the Corona Yard into the Main Street station bumped to be put in to passenger service when they bumped. The train operators were not injured and there were no passengers on the train at the time of the incident.
Service between Main Street and Willets Point was suspended for nearly an hour as the trains involved in the incident were cleared. Service resumed around 8 a.m. with residual delays.
The incident is under investigation.
I’m going to poke around & see if I can find out exactly what happened.
