Potential for crowded MARC trains

By Mark Berman
Mark Berman

Once again, several MARC Penn Line trains will be running one car short due to an equipment shortage. This could lead to some crowding on these trains: train 503 (4:40 a.m. departure from Perryville), train 402 (6:45 a.m. departure from Washington), train 415 (7:40 a.m. departure from Baltimore), train 408 (7:37 a.m. departure from Washington) and train 419 (9:05 a.m. deparure from Baltimore).

Additionally, the ticket machine at the Camden Station is still out of service. Tickets may be purchased on the train with cash only and no bills larger than $20 dollar bills are accepted. Passengers needing to purchase weekly or monthly tickets should use another station. The technician will return today to attempt to fix it.
