Metra BNSF signal problems near Naperville cause delays, cancel some trains

CHICAGO (WLS) -- There were delays on the Metra BNSF line Thursday afternoon and some canceled trains due to signal issues, officials said.

Metra said train #1233, which was scheduled to arrive in Aurora at 3:04 p.m., is stopped near Naperville due to a signal issue. The duration of the delay is unknown.

Metra train #1263, which was scheduled to depart Union Station in Chicago at 5:11 p.m., will not operate due to the signal problems. Metra officials warned that because of the cancellation, ridership on train #1265 will likely be heavier than normal.
