A derailment by a maintenance-of-track crew on the Red Line caused major delays Tuesday morning and damaged the third rail, according to the MBTA.

At about 4:45 a.m., the T said a piece of maintenance equipment derailed on the northbound Red Line track at Park Station. No injuries were reported, but the derailment caused serious delays during Tuesday morning’s commute.

The MBTA said the derailment also caused some damage to the third rail that required repair work by the MBTA’s Department of Energy.

Shuttle buses replaced Red Line service between Harvard and Broadway stations while repairs were being made, and downtown-bound travelers were asked to use Commuter Rail service from JFK/UMass to South Station and from Porter Station to North Station.

At about 9:55 a.m., the T said repairs had been completed and power was being restored. About 20 minutes later, the transit agency said shuttle buses were being phased out and normal service had resumed between Harvard and Broadway.
