CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Multiple train lines at Ogilvie Transportation Center are delayed Wednesday evening because of a switching problem.

At least eight trains on the Union Pacific North, Northwest and West lines are delayed, said Metra spokesman Michael Gillis.

The trains have been delayed since before 5:30 p.m. because of the switching problem, Gillis said.

Trains are delayed between 20 and 60 minutes as of about 6 p.m., Metra's website said.

Gillis could not immediately say whether the delays are weather-related.

Metra previously issued a service alert warning riders that the snow and cold could cause delays for commuters through Wednesday.
