VIDEO: Passengers evacuated from Leeds train with ladders after three-hour delays
Passengers on the train reported 'nearly passing out' in the baking heat while Northern Rail readied an alternative.
The train stopped due to an issue with overhead power lines.
After several very hot hours for the passengers, Northern Rail then sent another train alongside the service and had to use ladders to evacuate passengers.
One commuter said: "Horrific commute from Guiseley to Leeds, 17 minute journey taking 3 hours. Close to passing out"
Another added: "Details? We've been sat here for 2 hours, people are nearly passing out and people are missing their Uni final exams."
The delay first began at 8.30am, and at 11.26am, Northern Rail tweeted to a passenger: "A train has been sent to take passengers on to Leeds, you'll be evacuated onto the new train."
