BROOKLYN -- Every day train stations are subjected to wear and tear. Many of them are showing their age.

Pieces of the ceiling fell onto the tracks at the DeKalb Station in downtown Brooklyn on Monday afternoon. MTA crews inspected the area and did not find structural damage.

A spokesperson called it "cosmetic" and said it was being addressed.

There were delays on the B, D, N, Q, and R lines in Brooklyn during the evening rush hour. The debris and repairs meant there were fewer tracks in use. That causes a back up.

A computer problem also was causing signal problems along the L line into early Wednesday morning.
