    A derailed subway train is causing delays on the 4, 5 and 6 lines.

    A derailed 6 train has caused residual delays for the Monday morning rush.

    Nineteen people were in the two cars that derailed in the early morning, but no one was hurt. The passengers were picked up by another train and escorted to safety as crews worked to put the derailed train back on track.

    At this point, 4, 5 and 6 trains are experiencing delays in both directions. Also, 6 train service is extended to the Bowling Green Station.

    For alternate service, customers are advised to use the N, Q, R, 1, 2 and 3 trains.

    The cause of the derailment is under investigation.

    Separately, due to signal problems, select uptown 5 trains are running on the 2 line from the Nevins Street Station to the 149th Street-Grand Concourse Station.
