Broken Rail Partially Suspends L Train Service in Brooklyn (Updated)


    Don’t take the L train tonight if you can avoid it. A broken rail at Dekalb Avenue has crippled the line’s service, and there are no trains running between the stations at Lorimer Street and Myrtle-Wyckoff, Gothamist reported.

    Details are scanty but disgruntled subway riders are taking to Twitter to air their grievances.

    Update: L Train service is back up and running with delays.

    An MTA spokesperson told Gothamist the broken rail was “detected” shortly before 2 p.m. today.

    There is shuttle bus service between Lorimer and Myrtle/Wyckoff. Or you could hail an Uber or hop on a Citi Bike.
