[UPDATE BELOW] 8:30 a.m. Eep, NYC Transit is warning, "Due to a rail condition at the Queensboro Plaza Station, there is no service in both directions on the N trains from the Queensboro Plaza Station to the Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard Station," plus the "W train service has been suspended the entire line." There are shuttle trains running local from the Queensboro Plaza Station to the Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard Station and shuttle trains running express from Ditmars Boulevard to Queensboro Plaza, but "As an alternative, customers are advised to take Q69, Q101 or Q102 bus making nearby station stops."
9:40 a.m.: Now NYC Transit says all service is running normally, but reader Jessica Pearson sent us this photograph of the chaos that had ensued. She writes, "People trying to go to Manhattan [had to] take a Ditmars bound train to Astoria Blvd and transfer to a Manhattan bound train. MTA workers [were] misinformed and told a lot of people to stay on wrong side of the track."
