West Coast Express late rolling into Maple Ridge Friday

Freight caused delays, said TransLink

West Coast Express trains were running late Friday morning. TransLink said train No. 1 which was supposed to roll into Port Haney at 5:44 a.m., was delayed by 10 minutes because of freight trains on the track.

Train No. 2 was also late by 15 minutes, while train No. 4 departed eight minutes late from Mission, “because of a freight issue” and was supposed to arrive into Port Haney at about 7:22 a.m.

TransLink hasn’t said if train No. 5 departed Mission on schedule.

The rush-hour commuter rail service operates on CP Rail’s main freight line into Vancouver.
