MARC delays, crowding likely

By Mark Berman

8:50 A.M. UPDATE:

Things are getting worse for MARC riders: There's a switch problem in the Washington terminal. Penn Line train 415 is holding north of New York Avenue; train 410 departing from Washington at 8:20 a.m. is stopped in the terminal.

8:10 A.M. UPDATE:

In case you were hoping the MARC delays have cleared up: nope, they have not. Metro will honor MARC tickets, and Brunswick Line trains still expected to run 20 to 30 minutes late between Barnesville and Germantown.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:

MARC train 872 is running 25 to 30 minutes late due to signal problems to the west of Barnesville. Train 874 is expected to follow 15 to 20 minutes behind. All Brunswick Line trains are operating 20 to 30 minutes late between Barnesville and Germantown.

Due to these delays, Metro is honoring MARC tickets.


The Maryland Transit Administration expect significant crowding on the MARC this morning due to the March for Life in the District. Arrive early to your station and expect to encounter big crowds.

Also, MARC Brunswick Line train 872 is running between 15 and 18 minutes late this morning.
