MARC delays and crowding

By Mark Berman

7:30 A.M. UPDATE:

Penn Line train 410 is going to run about 20 minutes late.

7:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- And for good measure, Brunswick Line train 894 is running 10 minutes behind.

7:05 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Adding to the fun for Brunswick Line train 894, the train (which is already running one car short) will also run without a bathroom this morning. So, get excited for that.

6:50 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Penn Line train 405 is about 18 minutes behind schedule.

6:15 A.M. UPDATE:

-- Penn Line train 405 left Baltimore 16 minutes behind schedule. It's running 15 to 20 minutes late due to mechanical problems.

-- Brunswick Line train 872 is nine minutes late approaching Germantown.

Some things for MARC commuters to be aware of this morning:

-- Brunswick Line trains 870, 880 and 894 will be running one car short this morning, so expect some crowding there.

-- Additionally, train 870 (departing from Brunswick at 5 a.m.) is running 12 to 15 minutes behind approaching Point of Rocks due to freight traffic.
