Major VRE delays
9 A.M. UPDATE: Amtrak train 174 has departed Quantico. Train 310 is at Quantico now and will leave soon, followed by train 312.
Riders of the VRE's Fredericksburg Line are going to be a bit late to work today. Train 310 (scheduled to depart Fredericksburg at 7:10 a.m.) stopped south of Quantico earlier this morning with mechanical problems. It's going to couple with train 312 (scheduled to depart Fredericksburg at 7:40 a.m.), but this is going to add a 30 minute delay to both trains. Train 310 is already 45 minutes behind, while train 312 is 15 minutes late.
However, your VRE ticket will get you onto the Metro at the Franconia-Springfield and King Street stations. And Amtrak train 174 will make all VRE stops. It's passing by the disabled train and should arrive at Quantico shortly. it's going to arrive ahead of VRE trains at all of the remaining stations.
