Big VRE headaches

By Mark Berman
Mark Berman

7:05 A.M. UPDATE:

Big, big delays remain on the VRE.

-- Train 304 is at least 70 minutes behind due to engine failure
-- Train 306 will be at least 45 minutes late due to coupling to train 304
-- Train 308 is at least 15 minutes late due to loading passengers from the far track, and will operate around the couping trains
-- Trains 302 and 304 were stopped due to engine issues.

Again, the Metro option has been opened at Franconia-Springfield. Just show your VRE ticket for entry.

ORIGINAL POST:
Big VRE delays this morning: Train 300 was delayed due to equipment problems and is currently passing Crystal City. Trains 302 and 304 are also delayed due to equipment problems and are running behind. The Metro option (allowing VRE riders to take Metro) has been opened at Franconia-Springfield, according to VRE.

Are these the new engines that are failing?
