PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - SEPTA has temporarily suspended service on the Norristown Regional Rail line due to technical difficulties Saturday afternoon.
SEPTA officials said the problem is due to overhead wire issues. Riders may be able to use a combination of the Norristown High Speed Line and the Market-Frankford Line as an alternative route during the disruption.
As of 11 p.m. Saturday night, SEPTA is shuttle busing along the Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail Line. Riders who need service from Center City to the suburbs can board buses at Market East Station located on Market between 11th and 12th streets. Buses will also provide service to train stations along the line.
Repairs are being conducted on the line, although it is unclear when regular rail service will be restored.
Updates will be provided as they become available.
