Slow "A" by aqueduct

Post by BobLI » Wed Jan 19, 2011 2:48 pm

Since the December snow storm the south bound A train has been crawling just north of the Aqueduct/Conduit station to just south of the Conduit bridges. is there a signal problem or track problem which would cause the slow crawling speed?

There is a slow speed order sign of 10MPH that is probably for the falling leaves during November and December.When I operated the A train train I was suprised to still see it there.

Perhaps more trains than normal were overrunning the platform hence the sign still being there.

I guess they forgot to remove the slow speed signs because there sure arent any leaves on the tracks in February. Or January either! I did notice a sign on a yellow wooden pole just before we slow down.
