Metra: morning commute unaffected by Monday snarl

There was a big headache for hundreds of Metra commuters Monday evening.A switching problem with the outbound Burlington Northern trains caused delays of up to a half hour. That resulted in a big backup at Union Station during the evening rush.

Metra has corrected the switching issue and said it does not expect any issues for the Tuesday morning commute.
