SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line running with a 15-minute delay

    Condolences to those who also got booted from SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line this morning. Things got sticky at the Spring Garden stop, causing a backup, and all passengers were forced to get off and wait for shuttle buses at Spring Garden.

    The operator of my westbound train told the unhappy passengers the problem was due to a sick passenger a few trains ahead of us. SEPTA’s Twitter account says the mess was caused by a switch failure.

    Regardless, trains are reportedly back up and running, but with 15-minute delays. The wait for the shuttle buses looked a whole lot longer.
