and this doesn’t even begin to describe the nightmare caused this AM by a “rail” breaking on the 7 line:

7:44AM:

7:53AM:

8:05AM:


(note this timestamp, 8:05)

8:08AM:

8:10AM:


(5 minutes since posting stuck at 63rd, which I didn’t post until about 10 minutes after realizing we weren’t moving at all)

8:12AM:


(so ~17 minutes waiting at this one station, during which time multiple EXPRESS trains blew by that were formerly 17 minutes delayed)

8:17AM:


(5 minutes to go halfway between two stops and stuck again)

8:18:AM:

8:23AM:


(11 minutes to go one stop, 63rd -> 67th)

8:25AM:

8:32AM:


(9 minutes to go one more stop)

8:33AM:

Unbelievable.

I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow…
