    It was a tough commute for SEPTA rail riders Wednesday.

    An overhead wire issue near the busy Jenkintown-Wyncote Station in Montgomery County caused all of the agency’s Regional Rail lines to experience delays up to 45 minutes, SEPTA said shortly before 9 a.m.

    The agency shuttle bused passengers between the Fern Rock Transportation Center and Jenkintown Station for passengers at the Elkins Park and Melrose Park stations.

    SEPTA finally got the wire issue resolved at 12:30 p.m. They warned commuters that there could be residual delays.
