230 passengers offloaded as electrical failure stops MRT-3 train
A north-bound train of the Metro Rail Transit-3 (MRT-3) suffered an “electrical failure” early Wednesday morning, affecting 230 rush hour-passengers.
According to an MRT-3 advisory, the glitch occurred around 6:01 a.m. at the north-bound portion of the Magallanes Station.
The service interruption, the advisory noted, was caused by “worn out electrical sub-components” such as insulator, regulator, and main chopper.
All affected passengers were subsequently loaded in a different train seven minutes later after the incident. /kga
