Big Red Line delays are expected this morning due to the derailment of track equipment near Union Station earlier this morning. Trains are sharing a single track between the Judiciary Square and New York Ave-Florida Ave-Gallaudet U Metrorail stations. Metro warns riders to expect delays of up to an hour.
The derailed track equipment is called a Petibone. It was on the track heading to Glenmont at 4:23 a.m., according to Metro. There were no injuries and it was re-railed about an hour later. Workers are currently making repairs to a portion of the track that was damaged by the derailment.
Metro advises riders heading downtown from Glenmont to transfer at Fort Totten to the Green Line.
There are Red Line delays stemming from a disruption at Union Station. Trains are sharing the same track between the Judiciary Square and New York Avenue stations due to a derailed piece of track equipment. Delays are in both directions.
