Subway Train Derails in Brooklyn, Disrupting Morning Commute


The Q is the second subway to derail this summer as a string of fiascos put Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state-operated MTA under the spotlight.

One auto came off the tracks shortly before 9am (9pm Singapore time) near Brighton Beach, where a replacement bus service was laid on for affected passengers, said the Metropolitan Transport Authority.

NYCT Subway, the official source for MTA subway service news, tweeted that a "derailment at Brighton Beach" is causing delays in Q train service. Some southbound Q trains are running on the N line from Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center to Coney Island, and some are terminating at Kings Highway.

Both directions, there is no train service between B'way Lafayette and Coney Island-Stillwell Av.

Both directions, B Subway trains are running from 145 St to Kings Hwy and terminate.

As an alternative for service in Bronx and Manhattan take the or train.

There were no reported injuries, and another train removed riders from the one that derailed, Mr. Ortiz said. SkyFoxHD was over the scene where the backend of the train was still at the station.

Cuomo has taken heat from New York City commuters who feel he has neglected existing transit options while setting aside funding for massive infrastructure projects, like a train connecting LaGuardia Airport to the subway and the LIRR.
