It may not feel like anything remotely related to a distant cousin of Spring this fine April Monday, but at least some L train tracks on 3rd Avenue were basking in the cozy daffodil-yellow hell flames of a track fire this morning, long enough to send the line into a rush hour tailspin.

Yes, Bedford Avenue magically transformed into the end of the line for Manhattan-bound L trains at 8:33 this morning, like a sick preview of things to come.

A tipster shared this video from the lucky son-of-a side of the platform.


The MTA says service resumed at 8:55 with residual delays, but tell that to your self esteem, self worth, and general sense of self.

Also, never mind, because a sick passenger added some excitement to the mix in both directions at 9:03.

Okay now we're resuming with residual delays.

Still.

Then again, at least you'll be thoroughly acclimated to this when things actually grind to a halt for years.

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.
