Crowding Easing on Red Line

Red Line trains are moving pretty well between Rhode Island Avenue and Shady Grove, according to what we can see from Metro Center. About 15 minutes ago, the trains were packed, but the crowding is easing now.

Trains are coming through the station in bunches.

Here's the status report that Metro is giving out right now on its Web site:

Disruption system-wide. Customers traveling or connecting to the Red Line, due to significant Red Line delays, customers are encouraged to add an additional 30 minutes to their travel times.

Red Line: Disruption at Fort Totten. Trains are turning back at Rhode Island Ave & Silver Spring due to a train experiencing mechanical difficulties outside of Ft. Totten. Shuttle service has been established.
