Underground Derailment Causes Delays on SEPTA Regional Rails Through Center City

By Suzanne Monaghan

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Commuters can expect average delays of about 15 minutes on all SEPTA regional rail lines throughout tonight’s evening rush.

A SEPTA spokesperson says an Airport Line train derailed this morning between Suburban and 30th Street stations, forcing “single-tracking” between the two stops.

Nearly 70 passengers were on board when the train derailed.  Four people were being treated for minor injuries.
