MARC trains canceled

MARC Camden Line trains 845 and 855 have been canceled. MARC 856 will make stops to cover the cancellation of MARC 855, according to the Maryland Transit administration.

Signal problems on the Brunswick Line have contributed to delays on the Brunswick Line. MARC 873, 877, 879, 891 and 893 are all operating late at least 15 minutes late.

Every day. Every single day there is some delay on the Brunswick line. I live less than 3 miles from a MARC train stop, and at the end of the month I will stop using this god-awful "service". Instead, I will drive for 30 minutes to take the Loudoun County Commuter bus because I need some reliability in my life. I'm sick and tired of missing dinner, not seeing my kids because I get home so late that they're already asleep, hot rail cars in the summer, freezing rail cars in the winter, the "bum rush" boarding of train 877 at Union Station (waiting until 2 minutes 'till depature to open the gate), surly conductors, and just for good measure I'll throw in the jerks in the "quiet car" who give you the evil eye if you so much as cough. I hate you MARC.
