    Normal train service has resumed on several lines following an early morning subway derailment, the MTA said.

    Still, straphangers should anticipate some residual delays on the 4, 5 and 6 lines.

    No one was hurt when the No. 6 subway train derailed near 125th Street and Lexington Avenue at about 4:15 a.m. Wednesday, officials said. The passengers were evacuated safely, but subsequent service disruptions wreaked havoc on the morning commute.

    A transit worker tells NBC New York track work was being performed at the time of the derailment.

    The 6 train may have been trying to pass the track work slowly, but an entire car and a wheel of a second car derailed. Crews removed the derailed car by 11:30 a.m. and inspectors checked out the track to make sure it was safe for use.
