Major MARC problems

By Mark Berman
Mark Berman

9:20 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 880 left the Brunswick station 90 minutes late. Again: Metro. Consider it as an alternative.

Brunswick Line train 880 os going to be at least 2 hours late. That's right: Two hours. Again, the Maryland Transit Administration encourages riders to take the Red Line instad.

8:40 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 880 is even more delayed due to switch problems in the Brunswick yard, so the Maryland Transit Administration urges riders to try using Metro instead.

8:25 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 878 is now 30 to 45 minutes behind, so Metro will honor MARC tickets.

8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 880 is 25 to 30 minutes late due to power failure at the Brunswick station.

Brunswick Line train 878 is still 15 minutes behind, while train 894 is 8 minutes late.

7:46 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 878 is now 15 minutes late due to a signal problem west of Brunswick, but it's approaching Germantown.

7:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 878 left Brunswick about 12 minutes late.

7:20 A.M. UPDATE:

Penn Line train 509 is running 15 minutes behind, while Brunswick Line train 876 is 11 minutes late due to a signal problem.

7:08 A.M. UPDATE:
Penn Line train 509 left the BWI station 12 minutes late.

6:45 A.M. UPDATE:
Penn Line train 509 is running 10 minutes late.

Delays on MARC's Brunswick Line: train 890 is running 8 to 10 minutes behind as it approaches Rockville. Train 874 is departing Brunswick 8 to 10 minutes late. If you're a regular MARC commuter, you know what this means -- early delays often lead to delays for many, if not most, of the trains to follow. So be aware of potential delays this morning.
