Cracked rail slows Red Line

Metro just tweeted that a cracked rail on the outbound portion of the Red Line at Takoma Station is slowing travel. There is a speed restriction of 15 mph through the affected area.

In January, the agency discovered a cracked rail outside the Forest Glen Metro station in the direction of Shady Grove.

Timely communication from Metro? Are we sure this isn't an April Fools joke played on us by an outgoing Catoe?

The fact that I've had to double check the initial timely FB report shows just how little trust we have in WMATA communications.

But at least we're being alerted about January's cracked rail!

They've been slowing down in that area for several weeks now, so perhaps it's not such a timely tweet.
