The Red and Purple Metro lines were experiencing about 20-minute delays Monday afternoon because of equipment problems in downtown Los Angeles, creating problems for rush-hour commuters.

Trains were sharing one track between Union Station and the 7th Street Station downtown as rush-hour commuters waited to go home, transit officials said.

There was no estimate on how long the lines would be affected by the problem.

No additional details were immediately available.
