CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Trains on Metra’s Union Pacific Northwest Line are running with delays during Friday’s morning commute because of mechanical problems.

Outbound train 603, which was scheduled to arrive in McHenry at 7:30 a.m., is running 35 minutes behind schedule because of earlier mechanical issues, according to service alerts from Metra.

As of 7:55 a.m., inbound train 632, originally scheduled to depart McHenry for Ogilvie Transportation Center, was still awaiting a delayed departure because of the delays to the earlier train, Metra said.
