A subway derailed at 125th Street in Manhattan Tuesday, sending panicked riders fleeing the train and walking the tracks to safety. More than a half-dozen subway lines saw major service changes for most of the day, and though service was slowly returning for the evening rush, delays are possible and more changes could be in store.
The MTA says local service will be restored on the A, B and D lines by 5 p.m., but the C line remains suspended.
Platform controllers have been dispatched to help customers at the 34th Street-Herald Square, 59th Street-Columbus Circle, 125th Street, 161st Street and 168th Street stations, the MTA says.

MTA officials said the derailment caused damage to the tracks and the switch system, and emergency repairs are required overnight into Wednesday. They're hoping to restore normal service in time for the morning rush.
