Trains running again at reopened Union Station; delays expected

Union Station reopened about 4 p.m. Thursday after a suspicious package left on a Metro platform prompted authorities to shut down the busy downtown hub.

A tweet from Metro said that all lines were resuming normal service, but that passengers should expect residual delays throughout the evening rush hour.

All rail operations in and out of the station were shut down after the package was reported at 2:27 p.m., a Metro alert read.

The Los Angeles County sheriff's bomb squad safely detonated it about an hour later, said Marc Littman, a Metro spokesman.
