Today has already been a monumentally bad day for subway service, what with multiple lines being taken out of service after a massive water main break near Lincoln Center this morning turned part of Broadway into a lake. The MTA promised that things would be cleared up in time for the rush hour commute, and while there are delays on the 1/2/3, things at least seem to be running again...just in time for another line to have a major problem.

As of 6 p.m. Monday, there were no E, M, F or R trains running from Manhattan to Queens. The MTA said in a tweet that a train's brakes were activated around 5:15 p.m. at Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av. station, which was caused by a switch malfunction at the station. The trains should be starting to resume by 6:15 p.m., but that has already caused a massive and dangerous amount of crowding on subway platforms, as you can see in some of the photos and videos.

Several people noted that they saw empty trains running along the line as things began to rest. A few trains were rerouted on particularly strange routes as well.

We'll update as we learn more information. Suffice to say, in the immortal words of I Think You Should Leave, "dump it, trash it, this one's garbage." Let's just start all over again tomorrow.
