Investigation underway into recent MARC problem

8:55 A.M. UPDATE:
And another headache -- due to the delays caused by Penn Line train 411, train 410 northbound will be running about 30 minutes late.

8:45 A.M. UPDATE:
More issues and delays for MARC riders. And all of these hiccups follow so closely on the heels of last week's situation where 900 riders were stuck on a MARC train for two hours without air conditioning.

-- Penn Line train 411 is disabled at the New Carrolton station. Train 415 is the next one into New Carrolton for passengers from train 411. WMATA will honor MARC tickets. Amtrak has sent a rescue engine to the scene.

-- Brunswick Line train 894 is running 15 to 20 minutes late as it approaches Rockville, following the delays of train 878 on the same line.

8:25 A.M. UPDATE:
Penn Line train 408 is running 25 to 30 minutes late as it approaches Bowie due to mechanical problems.

8:20 A.M UPDATE:
And an issue on the Penn Line, to complete the trifecta this morning: Train 411 has stopped at New Carrolton with engine problems. Train 513 is behind it.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 878 is also going to arrive in Germantown about 20 minutes late due to mechanical problems.

7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
MARC Brunswick Line train 878 is running 15 minutes late at Point of Rocks, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

MARC train 847 on the Camden Line might be feel a bit crowded this morning. The train, which leaves Baltimore at 6:40 a.m., will be running one car short today.
