At 9:20 AM, a Brooklyn-bound train derailed at the Park Place station. Due to this derailment, a service advisory is in place. Here are the details courtesy of a press release sent to me a short time ago by the MTA:
At 9:20 a.m., a Brooklyn-bound 2 train derailed at the Park Place Station. No injuries were reported and customers were removed from the train safely. Currently, 2 line trains are running on the Lexington Avenue 5 line in both directions. Number 3 trains are operating in two sections: between 148th Street and Times Square and between New Lots Avenue and Atlantic Avenue. There is no 3 service at this time between Times Square and Atlantic Avenue. Train service on the 1 line is not affected.
The cause of the incident is under investigation. We are working to restore service prior to the evening rush hour. In the interim, customers are urged to use the lettered lines where possible. In addition, northbound customers may transfer to the 45 at Nevins Street.
