CHICAGO — Brown Line service resumed Thursday morning with residual delays, after a derailment halted service between Kimball and Western, the CTA said.

Commuters were forced to take shuttle buses to work.

The CTA tweeted an announcement of the shutdown about 7:30 a.m. and answered commuter questions via Twitter. By 9:15 a.m., most of the affected stations had been cleared of commuters via CTA shuttle buses.

CTA personnel manned the stations to inform riders of the situation.

Brown Line trains had operated only between Western Avenue and the Loop due to the derailment, CTA said. Shuttle buses were dispatched to help commuters along the affected route.

Shortly before 10 a.m., the CTA announced service had resumed, though it warned riders to allow for extra travel time.

Earlier, commuter Brianna Noll was waiting at Sacramento and Lawrence and, echoing many others, complained of a lack of communication from the CTA. Craig Sadler, waiting at Kedzie and Lawrence, said when he went to his station "They just told me to come to the corner."

"Any time this happens I have no idea until I get to the station. That's annoying," said Sadler, who was trying to get to the Loop.
