Caltrain restored its train schedule to full service around noon after a power failure delayed trains between San Francisco and South San Francisco for a few hours this morning.

The outage began affecting the Caltrain signal system at about 8:30 a.m.

Power was restored by 11:55 a.m., according to Caltrain.

According to a Caltrain spokeswoman, Caltrain signal lights are operated by a dispatcher and the telephone transmission line used by the dispatcher had experienced the power failure.
