Caltrain service resumes after mechanical problems caused delays 

Regular Caltrain service has resumed after mechanical problems caused delays of up to an hour Thursday morning, a spokeswoman said.

Three southbound trains experienced problems — the first at the Belmont station around 5:50 a.m., the second at the San Carlos station around 7:15 a.m., and the third at the San Mateo station around 7:50 a.m., Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The San Mateo station breakdown caused serious troubles, since it was in a spot in which trains had to share a single track for about 45 minutes, delaying northbound trains, Dunn said.

As of 9:15 a.m., delays in both directions were between 10 and 40 minutes, depending on the train, Dunn said.

Regular service resumed at 10:30 a.m., in time for special trains operating for the San Francisco Giants game at AT&T Park this afternoon, she said.
