"Last night we changed the part that was stopping the trains for a few minutes. It's called the SDD or Secondary Detection Device. All is OK now," Roy wrote.
Roy described the part as a magnet, a device on the track, which caused the train to stop unexpectedly.
In any case, Roy said these problems did not pose any danger to passengers.
Sometimes the trains stopped for several minutes at various stations, beyond what they are supposed to stop for the boarding and exit of passengers.
When this happened, a male voice on the train's public address system expressed apologies because the train had stopped for several minutes, without elaborating on the reasons why. (TVN)
