Regular service resumes along CTrain Red Line in NW Calgary after mechanical issue

By CityNews Staff

Trains are getting back to regular service along the Red Line in northwest Calgary on Friday after a mechanical issue caused delays for much of the afternoon.

Calgary Transit first posted to social media around 11:30 a.m., saying service on the Red Line was shut down between Banff Trail and Sunnyside stations due to an issue with the overhead wires that power trains.

Trains began moving again around 4 p.m., but were travelling in both directions using a single track through Sunnyside, SAIT and Banff Trail stations. Calgary Transit updated around 5:45 p.m. that trains were no longer single tracking.

Shuttle buses had been operating during the closure to move riders between the stations.

There is no word yet on when regular service could be restored.

Calgary Transit said just after 1 p.m. there were also issues at SAIT Station, explaining a temporary stop was being set up for the 201 shuttle on 14 Street due to an issue with the station’s crossing arms.
