Red Line Trains Now Running Southbound From Granville; Northbound Trains Still Express Between Sheridan and Loyola

Update on today's derailment in Edgewater and how it affects Uptown:  Trains are running southbound from Granville again.  If you need to go south from Uptown, you are able to.

There are no southbound trains between Loyola and Granville due to the derailment, which took place on the southbound tracks slightly north of Granville.

This is the CTA announcement:
"Saturday, October 31, 2015 - 4:39 PM to TBD
Impact Level: Service Disruption / Major Delays

Red Line service has been temporarily suspended between Granville and Loyola due to a derailment.

As a result, trains are operating only between Granville/95th, and between Loyola/Howard only.

Shuttle trains will provide connecting service between Addison/Granville, and Loyola/Howard.

Shuttle buses are available to provide connecting service between Granville and Loyola.

Passengers may use #22, #36, #147, and #151 buses as alternatives to Red Line service.

See station personnel for further assistance, and pay attention to announcements on trains and at stations for service information."

We are working to restore service as quickly as possible. Allow extra travel time."
As scheduled, the northbound trains are running express between Sheridan and Loyola until Monday morning due to track work.  Here's the CTA announcement about that.

Life in the big city, eh?
