They were going off the rails on a crazed G train!
A Kensington-bound G train derailed Downtown on Thursday night, injuring at least two straphangers and stranding dozens, according to transit and fire authorities.
The train skidded to a halt at around 10:37 pm, after its front two wheels came off the tracks shortly after passing the Hoyt-Schermerhorn stop, a Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokeswoman said.
The approximately 80 passengers on board were stuck inside for about half-an-hour until fire department rescuers came to bust them out of the languishing locomotive, and the passengers then had to walk around 700 feet — the length of two football fields — through the tunnel back to the platform, fire officials said.
Emergency responders took two commuters to hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries, according to the fire department.
The transit agency still hasn’t worked out what caused the disaster, the spokeswoman said.
In the wake of the calamity, there will be no G train service all weekend between Fulton Street and Church Street stations, and only limited service between the Court Street and Bedford-Nostrand Avenues stops, the agency said.
