Orange Line trains to and from Midway Airport are back on the move after a derailment caused an hours-long suspension of service Monday on the Southwest Side.

As of about 2 p.m. ‘residual delays’ were still happening but service has resumed, the CTA said in a service alert.

No injuries were reported during the incident, which happened about 6:30 a.m. near the 35th and Archer station on the Orange Line, which runs between the Loop and Midway Airport, the CTA said in a service alert.

There were about 20 passengers riding the train when it sustained a ‘comparatively minor’ derailment, according to an agency spokesperson.

Earlier, trains were operating in two sections: between Midway and 35th and Archer, and between the Loop and Ashland. Free shuttle buses were made available to provide connecting service through the affected area.
