Mid - passengers getting off train-----VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:THEY MAY NOT HAVE LEFT THEIR HEARTS IN SAN FRANCISCO WEDNESDAY, BUT SOME COMMUTERS CERTAINLY LEFT THEIR NERVES. A PASSENGER LIGHT-RAIL TRAIN WAS LEFT UNMANNED AT A STOP AS THE OPERATOR GOT OFF TO CHECK A FAULTY DOOR. BUT THAT DOOR CLOSED, AND THE TRAIN STARTED MOVING ON DOWN THE TRACKS - WITH NO ONE AT THE HELM - THAT'S WHEN PASSENGERS TOOK ACTION.(SOT: Susan Moore - passenger)"They were pushing buttons to talk to the driver, there was no driver, both muni driver doors were locked and they were trying to get them open." THE TRAIN TRAVELED ABOUT A QUARTER MILE BEFORE SOMEONE PULLED THE EMERGENCY BRAKE. (SOT: Susan Moore - passenger)"We didn't know if a train was going to come up, so a couple guys went in the back and it was kind of like we were on our own without any help from Muni." THE DIRECTOR OF THE TRANSPORT AGENCY, KNOWN AS MUNI, SAYS THAT PASSENGERS WERE NEVER IN DANGER SINCE THE TRAIN HAD REVERTED TO AUTOMATIC CONTROLS. (SOT: John Haley - Muni transit director) "Once the train was stopped, not only did the controllers respond immediately, but we also stop all trains in both directions around it to increase the safety zone."BUT FOR SOME PASSENGERS, THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH.(SOT: Susan Moore - passenger)"For Muni to make light of it, it was really upsetting because it was like you know what? You weren't there."THE TRAIN OPERATOR HAS BEEN PLACED ON NON-DRIVING STATUS PENDING FURTHER INVESTIGATION.JILL CRAIG/Associated Press
