West Coast Express trains were late this morning for the second time this week.
Anne Drennan with Translink says they know how frustrating this is for passengers, and they try to keep delays to a minimum, but unfortunately unforseen issues do arise.
“In this case there was something on the tracks that was able to sever a hose and when this hose is severed the train stops automatically.”
Drennan says they are looking at what the debris was and how it got onto the track.
This morning’s first train was 20 minutes late, the second train 10 minutes behind schedule.
Tuesday a issue near Port Moody delayed trains as long as 45 minutes.
