QUEENS — Commuters faced delays and service changes on the 7 train during the Tuesday morning rush-hour due to a track condition at Grand Central, according to the MTA.

Changes as of 7:15 a.m. included:

  • There is no 7 express train service in both directions
  • Main St-bound 7 Subway trains are running on the 34 St-bound tracks between Grand Central-42 St and 34 St-Hudson Yards

As an alternative, customers were advised to take E, F, M, N, Q, R or W  trains, or M34 buses, which are making nearby station stops.

Train service resumed by 7:30 a.m., but delays continued, according to the MTA.
