Crowding, delays for MARC trains

By Mark Berman

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Now the delay is on the Penn Line: Train 504 is running 15 minutes late arriving at Martin airport.

8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 878 is running 30 minutes late as it approaches Gaithersburg, following train 894.

7:40 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 878 is running 20 minutes late as it approaches the Point of Rocks station.

7:15 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 878 is running 12 to 15 minutes late approaching Harpers Ferry due to a track problem.

6:50 A.M. UPATE:
Train 874 is running 30 minutes late due to the mechanical problems, so train 892 (the one running one car short) will run ahead of it. Train 876 will follow it. Metro will honor MARC tickets.

6:25 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick Line train 874 is running about 15 minutes behind due to mechanical problems.

MARC Brunswick Line train 892 (departing at 6:05 a.m. from Frederick) will run one car short this morning, so expect potential crowding.
