MARC crowding and delays

Mark Berman

There are already issues afoot with MARC this morning that include delays, potential crowding and bathroom issues. Here's what's going on:

-- Camden Line train 841 is running late, departing the Baltimore Camden Station between 15 and 18 minutes behind schedule due to freight train congestion. [Update: It's approaching the Dorsey station 23 minutes late.]

-- Brunswick Line train 870 (leaving Brunswick at 5 a.m.) is running one car short and without a restroom car this morning. Riders should expect potential crowding and use the bathroom before they get on the train.

-- Similarly, Camden Line train 844 (leaving Union station at 8:05 a.m.) is running one car short and without a restroom car this morning. Riders should expect potential crowding and use the bathroom before they get on the train.

I had no idea that MARC trains had bathrooms. If not for urinating on the platform and defecating on the seats, Metro wouldn't have any!
