They started moving again around 4 p.m. once inspectors gave the OK.

Three trains were delayed up to 45 minutes, but it isn't expected to affect rush hour travel, Gillis said.

"There's probably a few trains that got out a bit late, but we should be all right for the rest of rush hour," Gillis said.
