The MTA’s website has a service alert posted about the 5 train. The service alert said:

Due to signal problems at the East 180th Street Station, Brooklyn College-bound trains are running local from the East 180th Street Station to the 149th Street-Grand Concourse Station.
Please expect delays in service on the , and trains at this time.
My question is why should this cause delays on & service when those lines do not run where the does? Sometimes these MTA service alerts can be good comic relief!
