DENVER — Passenger trains used to carry passengers between the concourses and Jeppesen Terminal at Denver International Airport broke down Sunday morning, leaving travelers stuck until drivers could arrive to drive them manually.

The six trains stopped running about 11:35 a.m., DIA representatives said. Drivers were able to get the trains going again within 10 minutes, and the automatic system was back online by 1:30 p.m.

The glitch came as DIA was working through flight delays and cancellations stemming from a deadly crash Saturday at San Francisco International Airport.
