METRO Light Rail Trains Back in Service on Main Street/Red Line

METRO personnel have restored power to the rail system. All trains are back in service following a one hour delay. During the power outage a bus bridge (to compensate for lost rail service) was established to ensure patrons were able to move along the line. 

At approximately 1:40 P.M. the METRO Main Street/Red Line Light Rail system lost power. The power failure occurred at Fannin and Bellows near Texas Children’s Hospital where scaffolding equipment from new bridge construction fell on the rail power grid.
