Signal failure halts Stockholm trains

Thousands of commuters were stranded Friday morning after a signal failure stopped rail service between Stockholm and the suburb of Södertälje.

Swedish Radio News reports that the electrical failure brought traffic to a standstill about 6:30 a.m. Transportation officials said it's unclear when trains will be up and running again.

"Right now we do not know very much, I've been informed that we have found the cause of the error, but we don't have any estimate," for when it will be fixed, said Beisi Sundin, a spokesperson at the Swedish Transport Administration.

The disruption may cause headaches for other travelers as officials re-direct trains and try to clear the backlog of delayed passengers. For example, trains heading to Malmö and Gothenburg have been redirected through the town of Västerås, which may mean that other traffic traveling in that area will be cancelled or delayed.
