Equipment derails, causes minor Blue Line delays

Some trains on the Blue Line were delayed early Tuesday after a piece of CTA equipment derailed on the West Side.

A piece of equipment that was running along the O’Hare International Airport-bound tracks derailed about 3:30 a.m. near the Cicero station, according to CTA spokeswoman Lambrini Lukidis.

Shuttle buses were available for passengers between the Austin and Pulaski stations, Lukidis said.

Trains were on the move again about 5:20 a.m., but experiencing residual delays throughout the morning commute, according to the CTA.

No one was injured in the derailment, Lukidis said.
