NEW YORK CITY — Commuters could expect a headache of a commute Tuesday evening due to service suspensions, changed routes and delays across the A, B, C and D lines in the aftermath of a train derailment in West Harlem Tuesday morning.
The train derailed after its emergency brakes suddenly activated and threw two of its cars into a tunnel wall near West 125th Street station about 9:48 a.m., injuring about 34 people in the process, officials said.
Trains throughout the system were disrupted because of the derailment, with many suspended and others delayed.
Here are the commuting changes that went into effect after 5 p.m., according to the MTA. Riders could expect delays on all the lines.
► A TRAIN — Trains will run local in both directions between 168th Street and 59th Street and then express in both directions between 59th Street and Canal Street. Lefferts-bound trains will run local in Brooklyn and Far Rockaway-bound trains will run express.
► B TRAIN — Trains will run on the Q line in both directions between Brighton Beach and 96th Street.
► C TRAIN — Trains will continue to be suspended between Euclid Avenue and 168th Street.
► D TRAIN — Trains will run local in both directions between 205th Street and 59th Street and then normally between 59th Street and Coney Island.
Riders could also expect delays on the E, F and M lines.
