Switch failure causes delay

By Washington Post Editors

6 p.m. Update: MARC 879 is being held due to the failure of a switch outside of Union Station. CSX crews are on the scene, the MTA said.

Original post: Maryland Area Regional Commuter trains on the Brunswick Line are operating under flash flood restrictions Friday afternoon, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

The line, which runs between Washington and points north and west, including Frederick and Martinsburg, W.Va., is operated by CSX, which issued the advisory. Trains may experience delays of up to 15 to 20 minutes, the MTA said.
