A power line problem has delayed Metra Electric trains that leave from the Randolph Station. A South Shore train was caught in the wires just south of Millennium station at Van Buren. There is no service in or out of Millennium Station for about 45 minutes.

Trains were expected to be delayed up to an hour. Friday afternoon.

South Shore and University Park trains, meaning travelers going to the south suburbs and Indiana, were affected.
