More PATCO delays amid construction
It was the first rush-hour of PATCO's newly revised construction schedule, which will continue through Memorial Day on Fridays after the morning rush and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
An eastbound train was taken out of service at the 15th-16th and Locust station, after passengers and crew heard a loud bang.
There were also reports of smoke, and Philadelphia firefighters quickly arrived, but PATCO president John Hanson said later that there had been no fire or smoke. He said the train was taken out of service as a precaution.
The delays began subsiding about 5:30 p.m. - Paul Nussbaum
