    SEPTA commuters voiced frustration Thursday morning as track problems caused delays underground on the Broad Street Line.

    The issue seemed to slow trains to a crawl, with some trains spending minutes stopped at consecutive stations.

    SEPTA initially tweeted shortly before 7 a.m. that northbound trains wouldn't stop at Fairmount Station. They later tweeted that commuters should expect delays of 10 minutes.

    SEPTA spokeswoman Heather Redfern told NBC10 that the track department had to fix an issue with the track during the morning commute.

    Around 10:10 a.m., SEPTA tweeted that service at the Fairmount Station had finally returned to normal.

    Redfern said all service, and stops, should return back to normal Thursday morning.
