Northside CTA Experiences Serious Delays and Derailment on Friday Night

On Friday, February 8th at around 5:00 PM, the Howard Red/Purple/Yellow line station experienced a power outage which caused Yellow line services to be suspended, while Red and Purple line services were delayed as backup generators were brought in.

Around 6:00 PM, a purple line train became derailed near the Howard Station. Many passengers were escorted off the train and to the Howard stop, but many were also left stranded on the derailed train. A second train arrived after being called in for help, and the remaining passengers were then transferred on to the functioning train at approximately 7:30 PM.

Many Metra delays were also reported on Friday evening.
