    They're making this sound like an accident, but it would appear that someone tripped a switch that stops the trains & closes doors to prevent movement between concourses:

    11 Alive: Electrical switch causes lockdown at Atlanta Airport (Sept 23 2013)

    Airport spokesman Reese McCranie says an electrical switch forced a lockdown at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for a time Monday afternoon.

    McCranie says the lockdown stopped passenger trains in the tunnels and triggered doors between terminals that stopped the movement of passengers. Access to security checkpoints were also blocked during the lockdown.

    The lockdown lasted about 20 minutes, before crews restored access to the terminals at the world's busiest airport, McCranie said.
