There's a little (supposedly live) nicely-formatted summary box at grandcentralterminal.com that displays subway status for lines 4,5,6,7,S.

1.  The displayed statuses don't appear to agree with what's displayed at https://new.mta.info/, but that's OK for my purposes.

2.  What I really want is to build something with this type of info for the GCT trains using https://api-endpoint.mta.info/Dataservice/mtagtfsfeeds/camsys%2Fsubway-alerts.  

3.  The only place in that json that I see "Planned Work", one of the displayed statuses (at least right now) is in places like this:

            "headerText": {
               "translation": [
                  {
                     "text": "Elevator outage @ 149 St - 3 Av: 3rd Ave & 149 St (SW corner) to Platform for uptown service [Planned Work]",
                     "language": "en"
                  }
               ]
            },
            "descriptionText": {
               "translation": [
                  {
                     "text": "Elevator outage @ 149 St - 3 Av: 3rd Ave & 149 St (SW corner) to Platform for uptown service [Planned Work]",
                     "language": "en"
                  }
               ]
            }

4. and, of course, non of the alerts appear to have stopId's that match the GCT ones.

Any idea if I'm looking in the right place?

This may be too granular a question for this group, not sure.  Thanks a lot.
