Service has resumed on SEPTA's Chestnut Hill East regional rail line after an earlier mishap involving power lines.

Overhead electrical lines came down on a SEPTA train Thursday morning, suspending all service on the line.

It happened at 8:30 a.m.

The affected train was stopped at the SEPTA's Stenton Avenue station in the 6700 block of Blakemore Street, and all passengers were off-loaded.

Images from Chopper 6 HD over the scene showed several stopped trains and power lines lying atop one of them.

No injuries were reported. There was no immediate word what brought down the power lines.

According to SEPTA's website, all inbound and outbound service on the line had returned to normal by 2:00 p.m.
