4:15 PM: MTA spokesperson Kristen Holland has sent an alert that as of 2:45 today, the N is experiencing service disruptions due to an overhead wire problem at 19th Ave. Greg Dewar has a tweetpic of the stoppage here.

As a result, N commuters will switch to shuttle buses between the Carl Street and Hillway stop and the 19th and Judah stop. Which means if you’re going from or to the Outer Sunset, you’re in for a world of fun! Wheee!
