Denver’s train to the plane is running into 15 to 30 minute delays this morning, according to RTD.

The issue today is “operational difficulties” at numerous road crossings. The train also experienced issues at crossings in June, when a software glitch interfered with the crossing gates.

The issue was resolved Wednesday afternoon:

This is just one of a wide variety of problems that have delayed the new line, which Colorado Public Radio has helpfully compiled. They include: Lightning strikes, snagged electrical wires and guidance system problems.

RTD has asked for patience, noting that each delay has been caused by a different problem. (We’ll see about this latest one.)
