DENVER -- A week and two days after its grand opening, RTD's B Line service to Westminster can no longer say it runs without its problems.

Travelers were stuck on the rails for about 42 minutes due to a signal issue that would not let the train move at Denver Union Station, RTD spokesperson Nate Currie told Denver7. 

About 40 passengers had to be taken to Westminster via bus shuttles until about 7:30 p.m., Currie said, adding Wednesday's malfunction wasn't so much a B Line issue as it was a Union Station rail yard switch issue that was causing all the trains headed north to have to wait. 

B Line service was back up by about 7:23 p.m.
