TOKYO - A computer glitch halted Japan's bullet train lines early Monday in northern and central regions, the operator said, with cancellations and delays affecting more than 50,000 passengers.

The system trouble that shut down the company's computer disrupted the Tohoku, Josetsu, Akita, Yamagata and Nagano Shinkansen bullet train lines -- five high-speed rail systems covering the northern and central regions.

At least three trains were temporarily stranded between stations with passengers on board, public broadcaster NHK reported.

The computer system resumed with the lines beginning to operate about an hour later, operator East Japan Railway Co. said on its website.
