Big MARC delays
8 A.M. UPDATE:
All Brunswick and Frederick trains are operating 15 to 30 minutes late. Again, Metro will accept MARC tickets.
7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
All Brunswick Line trains are running between 15 and 30 minutes late.
Camden Line southbound train 847 is running 20 to 25 minutes late. [Update: It left Baltimore 30 minutes late.] The northbound 840 train is running 10 to 12 minutes late. Brunswick Line train 872 left Rockville 17 minutes late.
Meanwhile, for Camden Line riders: The ticket machine at Dorsey is out of service. You can purchase tickets on the train, but only with cash.
6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Brunswick train 870 is 20 minutes late approaching Rockville, train 890 is 20 minutes late approaching Boyds and train 872 (running one car short, remember) is 15 minutes behind as it approaches Barnesville.
6:10 A.M. UPDATE:
Now all Brunswick Line trains are running 15 to 25 minutes behind schedule. Metro will honor tickets.
There are already some major headaches for MARC riders this morning. Train 870 (from Brunswick) is running 20 to 25 minutes behind due to a switch problem at the station, while train 890 (from Frederick) is delayed 20 to 30 minutes between Monocacy and Dickerson due to a track problem. And train 872 (from Brunswick) will run one car short, so you can expect some crowding on that train.
Metro will honor MARC tickets from Shady Grove into Washington, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
