“This is a nutcase who is addicted to f*cking with the trains.” That was how one MTA New York City Transit source with knowledge of the situation described the latest curiosity to befall the city’s beleaguered subway. Someone-no one really knows who-has been disrupting the train system, sneaking into cabs, pulling the emergency brakes, and grinding not just one train, but entire lines in the system to a halt during the busiest hours of the day. And just like that, they then melt into the darkness between the tunnels, waiting to strike again. And on Tuesday evening, the official New York City Transit account alerted the public to this person’s existence, although the tweet made it sound like yesterday was an isolated incident. It was not.
