Delays on Orange, Blue Lines
Original post, 8:19 a.m.: Delays of 40 minutes or more are likely to last through the morning. See Debbi Wilgoren's story about equipment train derailment at Court House Station.
No one was hurt in the derailment, which occurred before Metrorail opened this morning. But trains are sharing a single track between Clarendon and Foggy Bottom, which means that the Blue Line, as well as the Orange Line is affected. Big delays and crowding in both directions.
Riders in Northern Virginia could consider the 38B Metrobus as an alternative, though it's likely to be crowded too. The 38B starts in Ballston, crosses the Key Bridge and heads along M Street and K Street to reach Farragut Square.
