My way of phrasing it

Dear Marc,
yesterday, when I took the subway, the lady in the speakers, the subway MC if you will, told us the usual:

"Good day folks, no use cramming all of you into this particular train, there are more trains right behind us"

but then she went into the following explanation:
"there's something wrong with a train ahead of us, causing...causing this constipation in the subway system".

We were still crammed but now more merrily so. Constipation - it's a gas.
