Broken rail repaired
3:22 p.m. Update: VRE says the rail has been repaired and normal service will operate to Broad Run.
1:32 p.m. Update: VRE officials said Norfolk Southern, which owns the tracks, expects to have the rail fixed so that it won't affect later trains.
1:30 p.m. Update: VRE says a bus will pick up Train 325 passengers at Manassas and transport them to Broad Run.
Original post: Virginia Railway Express says a broken rail south of Manassas means Train 325, which departed Union Station at 1:15 p.m., will not operate into Broad Run. The train will turn at Broad Run. The commuter rail agency is weighing alternate transportation to Broad Run for passengers.
