MARC adjusts Wednesday trains

By Michael D. Bolden

The Maryland Area Regional Commuter rail service is canceling some trains Wednesday afternoon and replacing them with earlier ones in anticipation of a shift in passenger traffic as workers depart for the Thanksgiving holiday.

On the Brunswick Line, Train 877, which normally departs Washington at 4:55 p.m., is canceled. An earlier train will leave Washington at 2:40 p.m., stopping at Silver Spring, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Point of Rocks, Brunswick and all West Virginia stops. The Brunswick Line provides service between Washington and points north and west, including Frederick and Martinsburg, W.Va.

On the Camden Line, Train 852, which normally departs Washington at 5:51 p.m., will be canceled. An earlier train will leave Washington at 2 p.m. and make all of the usual stops to Camden.

On the Penn Line, a train is being added in the early afternoon, departing Washington at 2:50 p.m., and making all stops to Perryville. The Penn Line connects Washington and northeastern Maryland through Baltimore.

There will be no MARC service on Thursday or Friday.
