Orange line service delayed -- and restored
Metro Orange line service was delayed Monday evening after a man was spotted on the tracks, a Metro spokeswoman said.
A train operator reported that the man was walking along the tracks just before 7 p.m. between the Deanwood and Cheverly stations, said Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates.
One train was halted on the track that carries trains toward Vienna, and power to that track was shut off in the Deanwood area while authorities searched for the man, Gates said.
The man was not found, and full service was restored by 7:25 p.m., Gates said.
