Time for Platform Screen Doors-Another 12-9

Posted by Forest Glen on Wed Mar 14 20:13:43 2012

A 12-9 may have occurred on the 6 at Bleecker Street. This was the third(?) one this week.

According to the NYCTSubwayScoop Twitter feed, a person was struck on the express track between Bleecker and Spring streets.

So, platform screens might not have helped here, but yes, they certainly can prevent the many others that seems to be happening lately. I'm guessing the costs would be insurmountable.

There is no uptown 4 train service from Brooklyn Bridge to 42nd Street.

Both directions, 5 train service running on 2 line from Nevins Street to 149th Street-Grand Concourse.

Both directions, no 6 train service from Brooklyn Bridge to 42nd Street.

Please expect delays on the 2, 4, 5, 6 train service at this time.

So strange seeing "Way Out" in place of "Exit" . . . even Ireland uses "Exit" . . .

Man struck by 6 train in tunnel

Posted by Gold_12TH on Wed Mar 14 22:32:24 2012, in response to Time for Platform Screen Doors-Another 12-9, posted by Forest Glen on Wed Mar 14 20:13:43 2012.

A man was struck and killed by a subway train Wednesday night.

Police are trying to figure out why he was walking inside an underground tunnel.

The man was struck by a 6 train in the tunnel between the Bleecker and Spring Street Stations around 7 p.m.

A rescue train was sent to off-load passengers from the train.

Service was suspended while rescuers cleared the scene.

According to their Twitter feed @NYCTSubwayScoop it did, and only northbound local service was restored last night when full southbound service resumed. I'm guessing ABC was just wrong.

You were correct, it happened on a 5 train on the northbound express track.

Yes, a salesman from Serif Software called me (from Nottingham England), and I could hardly understand him. Most of their salesmen I can understand just fine, but this guy was as difficult as a China-man trying to speak English.

I did by the software, and he did give me a good price.

I was two trains behind the 5 train which was affected by the 12-9.


The ride was supposed to be from Bowling Green to Gun Hill/Seymour on the 5, a ride even under the notorius slow conditions on the Lext during the PM rush - - should take an hour and 10 minutes tops.


6:40 PM - - Arrived at Bowling Green, passed on Burnside 4 train (that would have been the best move because it was stuck behind the 5). Eastchester 5 train was 7 minutes away.

6:55 PM - - I am taking up the drunken RF window of the 5 train, things seems to be moving good until we got the Brooklyn Bridge - - homeballs and holding lights on both local and express tracks. I though, uh oh this is not going to work.

7 PM - - we had the orders to run on the local track, local stops to 42/GC. I was hoping we can just get past Bleecker at least.

7:10 PM - - EMS, police and FD all over Bleecker - - they were trying to find the body that was struck by a train. The 4 train was stuck south of Spring, the 5 train was stuck between Spring and Bleecker with the T/O on the roadbed with flashlight. Train is held at Bleecker

7:20 PM - - Gave up at Bleecker (PD and FD were getting onto roadbed to look for the body.), so I walked outside to B'way-Lafayette for anything to 34th or 42nd Street, D comes in.


With all that going on and the delays, I didn't get to Gun Hill until 8:40 PM, nearly two hours since I boarded a 5 train at Bowling Green.

You're never too old to learn "real" English. :p
