According to incident reports obtained by Jalopnik, a total of 747 rush-hour trains have been delayed or canceled due to a similar pattern of disruptions in the last three months.
Every time the suspect activates the emergency brake, this can cause delays for the dozens of trains that are left behind – hence the high number of reported incidents.
