PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – SEPTA passengers have been evacuated from trains after being stranded on train tracks for at least two hours. SEPTA blames wire issues near 30 Street Street Station.
This started around 3:30 p.m. Saturday at SEPTA's Paoli-Thorndal line.
"It was just basically just annoying and frustrating because we just wanted to go to town," said Bryn Mawr College student Abby Harris.

According to SEPTA, it took an hour to begin rescues because they had to find bus drivers to transport passengers from the trains.
Amtrak also had some wires coming down and related signal problems that caused them to temporarily suspend service between Harrisburg and Philadelphia.

“It became very frustrating because people called SEPTA and nobody was a swearing. I tweeted, but they gave very generic answers that were not helpful, and I continued to quickly tweet them so I could get some attention on this so we could get away, "Harris said.
The four trains were moved to SEPTA's train yard and it is not clear if the service will resume on Sunday.
