The train began smoking and was stopped and evacuated about 8:30 a.m. in the area of Montgomery Avenue and Pennswood Road, in Bryn Mawr.

Crews discovered a fire underneath the train and quickly extinguished it, authorities said. No passengers were injured in the incident.

SEPTA said delays up to 20 minutes continued on the Paoli Thorndale line later Monday morning.
