I’m sure many have not forgotten the nightmare from this past Wednesday when the 7 line was shutdown completely in both directions. As I posted during my coverage of the event, an A/C power failure was to blame for bring the entire line to a screeching halt. Now more details have surfaced as to what exactly happened.
The stem of the problem was a complete failure in a circuit breaker house in Corona. The failure caused all signals to go down & stop arms to go up. The failure caused delays for over 2 hours. Thankfully service was restored just as the afternoon rush hour started. However most had to deal with the loss of Flushing express service for the majority of the rush hour.
