[UPDATE BELOW]: For those of you who are starting off this lovely Monday on the F train, note that there are some...challenges...this morning, thanks to double whammy signal problems at 47-50 St-Rockefeller Center and an investigation at Broadway-Lafayette.
Earlier this morning, northbound F trains were running on the E line from West 4th to Roosevelt Av, with some northbound trains running along the G from Bergen to Court Square, and then along the E to Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av. Now, southbound F trains are stopping along the E Subway line from Jackson Hts-Roosevelt Av to W 4 St-Washington Sq. And those changes are coming with some heavy delays.
Avoid the F train in Manhattan. Been stuck in tunnel after 42nd St. for 30 minutes because of power failure/signal problem.

Commuters say they've been waiting for the F for a small lifetime, and Gothamist Editor-in-Chief John Del Signore reports he's been stuck on an F at 2nd Avenue for almost 15 minutes. The signal problems are also causing delays on E and G trains, there is no B train service in either direction, and earlier there were no M trains in either direction. Northbound D trains are running along the A line from W 4 St-Washington Sq to 59 St-Columbus Circle and southbound D trains are running along the C line from 59 St-Columbus Circle to W 4 St-Washington Sq, then via the F to Coney Island-Stillwell Av. There are also delays on the A and C.

People are mad.
The L train is also delayed, following a temporary service suspension thanks to a train with mechanical problems at DeKalb Ave earlier this morning.

The trains do not appear to be improving, despite some people's insistence otherwise.
Happy Monday! Signal problems on the F means a sardine can on the E too. Who said things had improved? There are some blue trains, but...

At least tomorrow is Tuesday?
If you found this 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 transit system.
Update 9:24 a.m.: This morning's subway trouble has just gotten worse, with commuters reporting residual delays and overcrowding systemwide.
