It might not be freezing rain but don't worry—there are still some subway problems to make this Tuesday evening a jaw-clencher. As Jake Dobkin reported from the York Street F station, "Power outage at West 4th—people going nuts."
To be more specific, the MTA says, "Due to signal problems between World Trade Center and Chambers St, the following service changes are in effect:
A and C trains are running on the F Subway Line Icon line from W 4 St-Washington Square to Jay St-MetroTech in both directions.
Southbound E trains are running on the F line from W 4 St-Washington Square to 2 Av and terminate.
Southbound E trains are running on the F line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to W 4 St-Washington Square.
Some F trains are running on the G ine from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to Bergen St in both directions.
A, C, E, F and G trains are running with delays in both directions.

Uggghh, the F train is acting up yet again. I just love having to run from the subway stop to pick up my son!

Don't commute in NYC when all the power is off during rush hour. MTA raise the price more so we can have more delays pic.twitter.com/1Zjm3sVjft

Update: Now the 8th Avenue-bound L train is joining in! Hope you brought a book.

Update II: The trains are all back on their proper tracks, but running with delays.
If you find this evening's commute frustrating, tell your state representatives and Governor Cuomo to stop robbing the MTA of badly needed funding and figure out a way to come up with more cash for a 21st Century subway system.
