An Arriva Trains Wales spokesman said: "The delay to the Arriva Trains Wales service at Waunarlwydd lasting from 9.10am until approximately 9.50am was due to engine problems on a Heart of Wales service.
"In the picture, you can see an Arriva Trains Wales 150 going in to 'rescue' the 153 train which was experiencing the engine problems.
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the delay."
