SF: Muni service mostly restored except J and N lines


San Francisco Municipal Railway subway service will resume Tuesday morning as crews continue working to correct the short in the electrical system, a Muni spokesman said.

All subway trains will run as normally scheduled beginning at 5 a.m., with the exception of the J-Church, and N-Judah lines, which will not continue inbound past Duboce and Church streets. Passengers will need to transfer to another inbound line to commute downtown Tuesday morning, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.

All subway trains were shut down Monday evening due to an electrical signaling problem resulting from a blown transformer. The transformer blew near the Van Ness station at about 5:45 p.m. leading to the service outage, Rose said.

The transformer was part of Muni’s infrastructure, Rose said. PG&E responded and checked their equipment but did not find a problem, but assisted Muni in making repairs, PG&E spokeswoman Jana Morris said.
