Last Train Delay of the Year

December 24, 2015

7train

Christmas Eve is the last day of work for me as I don’t have to report until Monday January 4.  My #7 train left Flushing at 6:56 AM and was proceeding as normal into Manhattan.  After the train left Vernon-Jackson in Long Island City.  The train stopped in the tunnel under the East River.  A few minutes later the conductor announced that the train ahead of us was stuck in Grand Central with mechanical problems.  After about 15 minutes we proceeded.

This should be my last train delay of 2015, but I still have to travel home.  I may use the subway to get into Manhattan for some recreational activity, and there could be train delays then.

More Seats are Needed in New York Penn Station

No not sit here

I was waiting in the 7th Avenue corridor of New York Penn Station this morning at about 11 and I had to take a picture of 9 people sitting on the stairs when there is a sign explcitly saying “Do Not Sit Here.” I know people just don’t read signs so it just does not pay to make them and put them up. It just shows that there needs to be more seating in the NJ TGransit area. In the off peak hours one may have to wait 20 minutes or so for the next train.
