20-30 min. MARC delays
Surprise--MARC trains out of Washington are running 20 to 30 minutes late this evening due to power problems at Union Station and Landover stations; single-tracking near New Carrolton; and congestion on the Camden Line, MARC reports.
Rider Kevin Scott tells us his 4:40 train left Union Station forty minutes past its scheduled departure. "They've communicated well but that doesn't help us move!" he wrote.
CSX issued heat orders for the Brunswick/Camden Lines this afternoon, too. The overhead power lines are highly sensitive to heat, and this summer's weather has repeatedly pushed the system past its max.
