Disabled train causes delays, crowding for SEPTA commuters

A disabled train has been causing delays and crowding on SEPTA's Market-Frankford line for hours during the morning rush.

SEPTA said at around 10 a.m. that the Market-Frankford line was resuming normal operations, about two and half hours after a disabled train at the 13th Street station began causing the problems.

The transit agency said the train had been removed, but some continued delays are expected.

Trains were single-tracking in the area around the disabled train and all passengers were told to board their trains on the westbound platforms between 5th Street and 15th Street.

Commuters had been reporting slow-moving, packed trains throughout the rush hour.
