9:18 P.M. UPDATE: Metro says the problem at Gallery Place has been cleared. However, expect delays to take a while to work out of the system.
9:15 A.M. UPDATE: Jackie Kazil snapped this photograph as her crowded train arrived at Farragut North.
8:55 A.M. UPDATE:
A Red Line train heading to Shady Grove is experiencing a door malfunction, according to Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff. The train is being examined right now and they aren't sure of the specific problem, he said. There are still delays on the Red Line, but he said they expect the delays to clear up soon.
The Post's Jackie Kazil reports on the fun from Gallery Place: Her Red Line train sat there for 25 minutes before offloading at the station. The riders were told it was a door problem, with a sensor saying a door was open while a search of the train revealed no open door. She got on another train and colorfully compared the Metro Center platform to a quarter game at the fair (the ones where quarters are pushed all the way up against a ledge, and adding just enough coins pushes them over the edge).
The Red Line has delays heading to Shady Grove due to a train malfunction at Gallery Place-Chinatown. The Post's Michael Ruane reports that an inbound train offloaded at the Dupont Circle station and headed back to Shady Grove, leaving big crowds and a big mess at Dupont.
