Wait, are we meaning to say that the SB lanes (or 1/2 lanes) will be closed indefinitely?

I haven't seen this announced everywhere. The spillover delays onto routes like 100 Marine Drive are going to be massive ?

Where is the news? Today's brouhaha resulted in probably about 20 cancelled run notices going into my text messages, tripled runtimes, and massive crowds of passed up passengers at even minor stops along the corridor.

Medical emergency, Gateway stn

Started at around 08:07. train 444 involved on the outbound.

Surrey bound trains from Waterfront turn back at Scott Road. Unload on the outbound.

trains to production are unaffected.

Shuttles: there are 2 because the return time is too long.

-King George to Surrey central on the outbound tracks

-Scott Road to Surrey Central on the inbound tracks, skipping Gateway. This shuttle train (449) has its sign stuck on COMMERCIAL BROADWAY so the announcer guy has to keep repeating himself lolol

Shuttle buses run Surrey Central to Scott Road

I think the incident at Gateway and the shuttle ops caused some major brouhaha with the destination signs lasting the day ?

In the evening at around 8PM, I was at Main Street and there were Waterfront-bound trains to King George, King George bound trains to Production Way, Production Way bound trains to Waterfront, a Commercial-Broadway train heading inbound from Main. Every single train had an incorrect display, with only the platform LED boards displaying the correct destination. Inside the train, the destination LED maps were stuck (some flashing on Scott Road), and announcements were not playing. I was on a train that had no announcements until they suddenly began working at Royal Oak.

I did also see destination sign mixups on mk2.5/3 - all on westbound trains west of Edmonds.

For some reason after I passed Edmonds OB the destinations on those train types were correct.

Isn't there a VOBC reset or something at Edmonds? If yes, I wouldn't rule out the possibility of that having something to do with it

Fire in the area of switch DC56 (king George) on the expo line.

king George outbound remains closed, trains are single tracking on the inbound from gateway to king George.

There was also an eastbound train kicked out of service at Metrotown due to a smoky smell

Correct me if I'm wrong, but over SkyTrain control's radio frequency I heard that a current collector shoe got knocked off of train #476 and started the fire

A stabbing has occured on S15007 while doing the 503. I can't say anything more other than that


UPDATE: The victim, a teenager, has unfortunately succumbed to their injuries in hospital. Rest in peace.
