I Just Missed a Horrific Delay on the #7 Train


Last February I experienced the worst delay I ever encountered in all the years I have rode the NYC subway system.  My commute on the #7 train this evening was pretty much normal as I rearched the Main Street Station at 5:30.  After 6 PM I got messages on my iPhone that the entire #7 line was out due to SIGNAL PROBLEMS.  About an hour later the 7 resumed with RESDIUAL DELAYS.  That means crowded trains and constantly hearing “stand clear of the closing doors” umpteen times at each station.

Thankfully I missed this delay, but what is going on with maintenance on this line?  For years stops are skipped for mainenance. Are the workers screwing up or what?
