No sooner did I board the Brooklyn bound F train around 9:40 tonight than a track fire broke out about 75 yards into the tunnel ahead.
Smoke permeated the station. The F was taken out of service and straphangers urged to backtrack to West 4th to re-route over the A line. Tacked about 45 minutes on to the commute, and I smell like a toxic campfire.
Don't litter in the subway stations! Put your garbage in its place.
