New York City Transit President Thomas F. Prendergast testified Tuesday at a City Council hearing on winter preparedness.

Among other things, he discussed an A train that was infamously stranded last December on an open-air station platform in Queens, near Kennedy Airport.

According to The New York Times, (http://nyti.ms/w4Nkdv ) Prendergast told the committee: "We forgot about that train."
