A few months ago I stood on the platform at Mineola looking at the signs displaying info about trains extensively delayed and being held at Jamaica at the same time the App was showing normal service.

I know. Quite often I find that they don't report on every train, or just get the information wrong or late.

The light at the end of the tunnel may be the headlight of an on-coming train.

Thanks, I thought so. Did the engineer you heard get by it? Looks like some eastbounds are holding in the distance.

Tom yes, the engineer I heard (if I understood correctly) was eastbound and said he got by without a problem but thought that the next westbound might not be able to clear it. Photo may have been taken after service was suspended.
