Power transmission trouble halted three JR Utsunomiya Line trains in Kuki, Saitama Prefecture, on Monday, stranding about 1,900 passengers for about two hours.

They later exited the trains and walked along the tracks to the nearest station. According to the local fire department, several people reported feeling ill and were sent to a hospital.
