Caltrain commute snarled by engine problems 

Caltrain commuters coming into The City were probably late to work Tuesday morning because the engine of a northbound train in Mountain View failed and caused subsequent delays.

The problem happened around 6 a.m. on express train No. 309 and the passengers were had to take another train to The City, said Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn.

That was about a 15-minute delay, she said.

Nos. 207, 313, 211, 215, 319 and 217 were also affected with indefinite delays.

And since the equipment on the broken-down was supposed to be used for the southbound again and turn into train No. 312, Caltrain had to ask those passengers to use train No. 314 instead, the only southbound train affected, Dunn said.
