An electrical failure bogged down a southbound Metro Rail Transit (MRT) train at Shaw Boulevard Station on Thursday evening, making it the third glitch to happen in the first week of new year.

In a service report, the MRT management said an electrical failure in the train’s motor was reported at 7:22 p.m. The glitch was caused by “worn out electrical sub-components.”
