The Redwood City Caltrain station has reopened after a woman was struck and killed by a train this morning, an agency spokeswoman said.

The station reopened as of about 9:50 a.m., but delays are continuing this morning because Caltrain is only running trains on one track through the area, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The woman was struck at about 6:15 a.m. by Caltrain No. 305 on the northbound tracks at the station located at 1 James Ave., Dunn said.

Train No. 305 had about 200 passengers on board and was not scheduled to stop at Redwood City. The train was eventually moved to the San Carlos station to allow the passengers to get off, then was taken to a maintenance facility in San Jose, Dunn said.

As of about 7 a.m., trains began single-tracking through the area on the southbound tracks but did not stop at the Redwood City station, according to Dunn. Bus shuttles were also taking passengers between the San Carlos and Menlo Park stations until about 10 a.m., she said.

Some Caltrain routes were canceled this morning and some trains were delayed by up to an hour, transit officials said.
