Train delays on northbound MRT line #SMRT

A northbound train stopped at Somerset MRT station with its wide doors open at about 6.55pm. -- ST GRAPHICS By Jalelah Abu Baker SMRT said its train service is still running smoothly, despite a northbound train that was delayed for nine minutes at Orchard station at 6.46pm. That caused delays further down the line as well for that period of time. As soon as there was an announcement that there would be a delay on the North-South line, about 20 people left the train at Somerset MRT station at about 6.55pm. Some chose to walk to the nearby Orchard station instead. Among them was semi-retiree Lee Suat Peng. He said: 'It will happen again. I don't want to get stuck.'
