The new L train with folding seats created to give commuters more space was reportedly vandalized.

According to the Daily News, the train was pulled from service Wednesday, less than a day after it debuted. 

Metal brackets were bent and cables were ripped out of one of the seats. 

The train was sent to a repair yard, and was put back in service Thursday night.
