Weather may delay a.m. VRE trains

By Jennifer Buske

Virginia Railway Express officials said the heavy rain predicted for Tuesday night and Wednesday morning could cause delays for morning commuters.

A flash flood watch is in effect for the majority of the VRE service area and if it turns into a warning, Manassas Line trains will be restricted to 15 mph and Fredericksburg Line trains will be restricted to 40 mph. With those restrictions, delays could be anywhere from 60 to 75 minutes on the Manassas Line and 45 to 60 minutes on the Fredericksburg Line, VRE officials said.

Trains should depart the first stations "close to on time," with delays progressing as trains travel into Washington. Riders can follow the latest delays on the Web site, or by calling 800-RIDE-VRE. Train Talk updates will also be sent with the latest information, VRE officials said.
