MINNEAPOLIS – Two light rail trains that were stuck due to power issues in Minneapolis Tuesday morning resumed normal service by 12:30 p.m. according to Metro Transit officials.
Spokesperson Drew Kerr told KARE 11 that the part of the train that draws power from overhead lines was damaged leaving one train stuck at Lake Street and another one over Highway 62.
Replacement buses ran between the Franklin and Terminal-2 HHH stations while the trains were stuck but by 12:30 p.m. rail service was restored.
According to a Twitter post, minor delays still exist as trains tried to resume their normal schedules.
Kerr said he did not believe the issue with the trains was weather related.
