8. The First Subway Delay Happened on Day One of the NYC Subway

We are used to delays on the New York City subway system, but the very first delay happened on day one. At 6pm, a fuse blew on an express train at 96th Street and the mechanics couldn’t figure it out. The train was pushed to 145th Street for repair and the total delay on the tracks was 20 minutes. Fortunately, the first train for the public didn’t start until 7 p.m.
