All south-east Queensland trains have returned to usual service hours after an emergency incident at a station in Brisbane's south-west on Monday morning.
Springfield* and Ipswich rail services were initially suspended for more than an hour early in the morning before the residual backlog of trains clogged the entire network into the afternoon.
The police incident occurred at Chelmer station just after 7am and TransLink notified commuters it had suspended services between Indooroopilly and Sherwood stations just before 7.30am.
During the peak of delays, commuters faced up to an extra hour waiting and buses were brought in to replace trains in both directions between Corinda and Roma Street stations.
At 9.50am, an hour after the suspension was lifted for Springfield and Ipswich trains, all trains across the network in both directions were delayed by 30 minutes.
TransLink said the network-wide delays were caused by the backlog of trains unable to move during the earlier service suspension, which had created congestion on the tracks.
By 1pm all train lines had returned to normal frequency, but each service was delayed up to 20 minutes. The residual delays cleared by 3.15pm.
