SEPTA Warminster, Doylestown Regional Rail Lines Shut Down

Service in both directions was shut down Wednesday afternoon on two SEPTA Regional Rail lines after a fire broke out under a train, the transit agency said.

The Warminster and Doylestown lines were shut down temporarily while workers responded to an equipment fire, the agency said. They were able to put out the fire, remove the affected train and resume service around 4:30 p.m. 

No injuries were immediately reported.

Passengers who were on the disabled train were off by 3:15 p.m. near the Glenside station. Delays of at least 30 minutes were reported in the area, and the Airport Line experienced 45-minute delays.
