PHILADELPHIA -- Service has resumed with extensive delays on SEPTA's Lansdale/Doylestown commuter rail line after a woman was struck and killed by a Philadelphia-bound train.

Trains are running up to 90 minutes behind schedule after being halted for about 3 hours during the Tuesday morning rush.

SEPTA says its other regional rail lines are delayed up to 20 minutes due to signaling problems.

Service on the Lansdale/Doylestown was suspended between Doylestown and Pennlyn after the woman was struck around 6 a.m. between the North Wales and Gwynedd Valley stations.

The 34-mile Lansdale/Doylestown line has a daily ridership of more than 16,000 people.
