One person who was on the train said all passengers were moved away from the front of the train. A short time later, everyone was asked to get off the train.

“At no time were passengers at risk and we appreciate their patience as we resolve this issue as safely and quickly as possible,” Keolis said in a statement.

    It’s only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed on the commuter rail.

    And passengers were indeed transferred to another train…over an hour later.
