7-Train Service Suspended

Commuters on the 7- Train had to evacuate after being stranded for almost two hours.

The MTA suspended 7 train service in both directions between 74 St-Broadway and 42 St-Times Square in both directions after an earlier incident.

Around 9:15 a.m. a train stalled west of Queensboro Plaza because of weather-related problems.

A track fire near 52nd Street broke out around the same time, and ice was allowed to build up along the rails as workers dealt with the fire.  As ice accumulated on the third rail, the MTA was forced to suspend 7 service in both directions.

Passengers on the train remained stranded in packed cars along the elevated tracks for nearly two hours until the train was finally towed into the station around 11:30 a.m.
