Red Line delays
9:30 A.M. UPDATE:
The Red Line delays continue in both directions due to single-tracking between Wheaton and Glenmont. But it's worth noting that there are reported headaches throughout the rest of the line. The Post's J. Freedom du Lac reported a train offloaded at Silver Spring due to a mechanical issue earlier this morning, while the Post's Liz Seymour reports a similar occurrence with a train having mechanical issues at Dupont Circle. So expect big headaches no matter where you are.
9:25 A.M. UPDATE:
The Red Line delays heading to Shady Grove are cleared, which is nice. But delays in both directions due to single-tracking between Wheaton and Glenmont continue unabated.
8:50 A.M. UPDATE:
There are also delays on the Red Line heading to Shady Grove because of an earlier train malfunction at Takoma. The malfunction was resolved, but the delays remain, and people on the Red Line should expect big headaches every which way.
8:45 A.M. UPDATE:
The Red Line delays remain in both directions, and this is going to snarl a lot of commutes this morning. The Post's J. Freedom du Lac reports that an abnormally crowded train bound for Shady Grove hit additional delays between Forest Glen and Silver spring because a train was being unloaded at Silver Spring with a mechanical issue. If you're taking the Red Line, expect big delays.
8:05 A.M. UPDATE:
Trains are still sharing the same track between Wheaton and Glenmont, and delays remain in both directions on the Red Line.
Additionally, all entrance escalators are out at the Wheaton station. Shuttle bus service is available, elevators are working and the station is open.
There are delays on the Red Line due to a track problem outside of Glenmont. Trains are sharing the same track between Wheaton and Glenmont, and there are delays in both directions.
