VRE trains delayed
9 A.M. UPDATE:
The delayed trains 324/326 should arrive at Union Station shortly.
8:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Trains 324 and 326 have stopped at Alexandria. The Metro option is open for Alexandria passengers.
8:15 A.M. UPDATE:
Trains 324 and 326 have made it to Alexandria. Meanwhile, train 330 is delayed by other train problems (i.e. train 324/326) and just departed Backlick Road.
8 A.M. UPDATE:
VRE trains 324/326 are moving and approaching Backlick Rd, per real-time map.
7:50 A.M. UPDATE:
Trains 324 and 326 have coupled and should be on the move.
7:25 A.M. UPDATE:
VRE train 328 will bypass Rolling Road due to the equipment for trains 324 and 326 obstructing platform.
The expected delays are 59 minutes or more for train 324 and between 45 and 60 minutes for train 326.
7:22 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 326 has arrived and the trains are now coupling.
7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
Now train 324 is stopped at Rolling Road and will, again, be coupled with train 326.
7 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 324 again had mechanical problems and was going to couple with train 326, but once again is operating on its own. But the Metro option is now available, so just show your VRE ticket to a Metro station agent for access.
There are delays for VRE train 324. It had stopped at Manassas Park due to a mechanical problem, and they were initially unable to resolve the issue and planned to couple it to Manassas Line train 326. However, it's back online so they are now able to move the train on its own, and it should be moving shortly.
However, they were expecting delays of at least 45 minutes for train 324 and 25 minutes for train 326. We are not sure how the delays will be changed now that they aren't coupling, but you can expect delays trains 324 and 326. VRE reports that personnel are on train 324 to monitor things, but they don't expect additional delays.
