Signal problems delay Metra Union Pacific lines

Trains on Metra's Union Pacific lines ware being delayed by as much as an hour late this afternoon because of computer signal problems.

Commuters on all three Union Pacific lines--West, North and Northwest--should expect delays of at least a half-hour this evening, said Metra spokeswoman Meg Reile.

A computer outage caused signal problems near the Ogilvie Transportation Center, and while the outage was fixed a little before 5 p.m., because it happened during rush hour, trains are delayed getting into and out of the station, Reile said.
