Someone shoulds add a new section on the Wiki TransLink Page, December 2020 Hack.

little bit of a field day on the Expo/Millennium Line this afternoon: Incidents ranging from severe to minor.

1) (this was the major incident) Stalled train between Nanaimo and Stadium. Production trains ran from Production to Columbia as mainline trains single-tracked through the eastbound tracks between Nanaimo and Stadium.
2) Some shouting match/verbal + physical altercation at Metrotown. Managed to catch the end of it and recorded a few seconds on my smartphone. Not sure how the long the train involved was stopped for though.
3) According to the scanner, there was a medical incident at Joyce where someone had been beaten up by a group of teenagers
4) A small track fire caused by papers at Commercial-Broadway (I assume it was the M-line westbound platform according to the chat)
5) Granville station, someone went into the tunnel, took a leak, and got back onto the platform

Discussion in another place says that a Dodge Charger had been speeding. A family of 5 in another car was hit. The 6 people in the 2 cars were sent to local hospitals.

stalled buses happen every day and thus no need to note it every time it happened

or else this thread would have 19 posts a day about stalled buses

edit: not too late to make guidelines for this thread
