    Looks like a pin in subway causing ball to rock on return track and hit side wall of underground return

      Looks like belt burn. Looks like something scraped the ball instead of the ball scraping something

        My guess was worn lower track rail covers, and ball is hitting metal uprail.

        Pin in the underlane would cause more obvious issues to the centre with underlane ball jams.
