MARC trains will be short

Two MARC trains departing Washington this afternoon will each operate with one less car than normal, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

Both of the trains, 530, departing at 4:24, and 534, departing at 5:20 p.m., run on the Penn Line.

The Penn Line has been afflicted with delays and equipment problems this summer. An incident in July where passengers were stuck in a stifling train for more than two hours prompted a review by state and federal officials and spurred Amtrak, which operates the line for the MTA, to revise how disabled trains are handled.
