Line extends from Smithsonian station all the way to the Castle

Three separate lines are flowing outside of the Smithsonian station. Police say there have been no incidents at that location on the Blue-Orange Line, but (despite warnings and the size of the crowd) some riders are surprised.

Jan Gurtner, 62 of Oakton, Va., thought opening the Smithsonian station up at the end of the night would clear people out fast. But it wasn't nearly as quick as she hoped.

"I thought this would be a breeze," she told the Post's Greg Gaudio, from her vantage point as the last person in a line that extends all the way to the Smithsonian Castle.
