Big VRE headaches

Mark Berman

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

Now train 332 is running about 15 to 20 minutes late. This stems from train 321 returning to Broad Run, which in turn was caused by train congestion that happened when train 328 was delayed.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:

Train 328 is moving now, about 30 minutes behind. Train 330 won't couple with train 328, but it might face delays following the delayed train 328.

ORIGINAL POST:

Some big headaches for VRE passengers. Train 328 is stopped south of Burke Centre with mechanical problems. While crews are working on it, train 330 will couple with train 328 in case they aren't able to fix the problems. Train 321 is also delayed due to other train problems.

The "Metro Option" is now available, so show your VRE ticket to enter and exit the Metro system.
