A power problem at a North Side CTA station disrupted train service on three lines during the Tuesday evening rush.

Red, Purple and Yellow Line trains were stopped at the Howard station because of “a loss of electrical power,” the Chicago Transit Authority said about 5:15 p.m.

Power was restored about 6 p.m. and all three lines were back on the move, but had major delays, the CTA said.
