If you're down about the weather, fear not: The MTA knows how to make things just that much worse.
Rush hour delays were reported Wednesday morning on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, B, F, and S lines and the N and Q lines.
A system signal issue snagged up a large chunk of the system, delaying service on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, B, F, and S lines. MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said normal service resumed by 10 a.m.
Meanwhile, riders on the N and Q trains had to wait through delays caused by a track fire around 9:15 a.m. at the Lexington Avenue and 59th Street station, according to the MTA. An insulator on the third rail caught fire, sending smoke into the station. Passengers were forced off a train at Queensboro Plaza, according to Ortiz.
As a result, there were no N/Q trains running in both directions between 57th St.-7th Ave. and Queensboro Plaza until 11 a.m., when service resumed with delays. Normal service resumed by noon. The R train had been running on the F line, which was already delayed from the earlier system signal problem.
