Dozens of RTD passengers had to be rescued Tuesday evening after their train stalled on the tracks.

Eighty riders were stuck on a 50-foot overpass next to the Denver International Airport cellphone lot.

The passengers were on board the new train that goes between Denver and DIA. Sister station KCNC reports the train was stopped because of a power outage -- the latest of several since the A Line opened one month ago.

Shuttle buses were brought in to pick up dozens of passengers.
