Breaking: Q Train Derails In Brighton Beach, Changes To B Train

A Q train has derailed near Brighton Beach during the rush hour commute this morning, temporarily suspending service on the B line in both directions, said MTA officials.

The second set of wheels on the second car of a southbound Q train came off the rails north of the Brighton Beach station around 8:55am, said MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz.

There were passengers on board, but no one was injured in the incident, according to officials. Another train recovered passengers from the derailed train and transported them to the Sheepshead Bay Station.

B train service was temporarily suspended from 145 St to Brighton Beach in both directions, said the MTA. As of 10:30am, B trains are running from 145 St to Kings Highway but other trains are still suspended between Kings Highway and Coney Island-Stillwell Ave.

Some southbound Q trains are running on the N line between Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center and Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue, and some Q trains will terminate at Kings Highway as of 10am Friday morning.

Update 10:30am: Here are the latest service changes from the MTA’s website:

B trains are running again in both directions from 145 St to Kings Hwy, but there is still no train service between Kings Hwy and Coney Island-Stillwell Ave.
