Looks like Old Saint Nick has visited Sheepshead Bay early this year (either that or MTA workers are getting some time off), as there are no B, Q, or F line subway changes scheduled in Brooklyn today through Wednesday.

You can still keep an eye out for changes in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens, as well as on other lines, via MTA.info–and check back on Wednesday for information on Christmas subway service, parking rules, closures, and more.

A Q train struck and killed a man at Avenue M in Midwood Thursday evening.

The man was hit by a southbound Q train shortly before 7pm, the MTA told CBS News.

It was not immediately clear if he fell onto the tracks or if he jumped.

The outlet reports:

A witness, Joey Baghdadi, took an Instagram video at the scene.

He reported that he was on the train and it stopped suddenly when only two cars had reached the platform.

The victim’s identity had not been made public by yesterday evening.

In news that will surprise no one, a lot of the city’s subways aren’t showing up on time — and it’s only gotten worse.

The MTA recently released some statistics that show you’re not going crazy when you think you’re waiting far too long for the next train. According to NBC New York, the report says that 25 percent of trains arrived at the end of the line five or more minutes behind schedule during the year covering October 2013 through October 2014 — which is a six percent increase from the year before.

There were 41,500 delays per month — which is, depending on the month, about 56 delays per hour. Yikes.

“The trains smell and they’re overcrowded,” straphanger John DiVito, telling it like it is to the Daily News. “They shouldn’t be slow. too.”

The MTA says all those delays are due in part to more people riding the subway, increased construction and maintenance projects (like the R train tunnel), and that they’re now doing more accurate reporting of arrivals and departures at the end of train lines.
