Mark Berman

Heat restrictions for commuter trains

5:20 p.m. Update: Train 893 will depart 15 to 20 minutes due to late equipment, the MTA said.

5:04 p.m. Update: Train 432 is holding at Washington due to single-tracking.

5 p.m. Update: Train 891 departed Washington 45 minutes late.

4:36 p.m. Update: Train 891 is still holding and delays have grown to 25 to 30 minutes. Also, Train 873 approaching Kensington is running 10 to 15 minutes late because of heat inspections.

4:13 p.m. Update: MARC Train 891 is holding in Washington because of mechanical problems. The Maryland Transit Administration says you should expect delays of 20 to 25 minutes.


8:35 A.M. UPDATE:
MARC Brunswick Line train 894 is about 15 minutes late arriving in Gaithersburg. It's making all stops and overcrowding is expected, according to the Maryland Transit Administration. Train 878 is following it and running 43 minutes behind.

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 878 will hold in the Brunswick station for train 880, which was canceled earlier this morning. Train 894 will run ahead and make the stops for train 878.

6 A.M. UPDATE: Train 880 has been canceled. Train 894 will make al stops to the District, while Metro will honor MARC tickets.

The Maryland Transit Administration has issued a message to MARC riders warning that the severe heat hitting the area this week could cause problems for MARC trains. MARC trains could suffer delays due to the heat causing problems for trains and equipment.

Also, Penn Line train 513 (departing at 6:30 a.m.) will operate one car short today. So riders on that train can expect potential crowding.
