Penn Line mess: 1 train disabled, 2 running late

If you're headed home on the MARC's Penn Line tonight, you may want to consider other options. In this heat, one Penn Line train is disabled and at least two others are running about 30 minutes late.

Here are the latest notices from MARC:
  • Penn: Marc 428 is stopped N of Seabrook with a mechanical problem, crew attempting to correct. August 20, 2009 4:38 PM
  • Penn: Marc 428 to transfer psxs to Marc 530, expect 45-60 minute delay for Marc 428 psxs to BWI. August 20, 2009 4:43 PM
  • Penn: Marc 530 will be operating approx 25-35 mins late to Bowie due assisting disabled Marc 428. August 20, 2009 4:45 PM
  • Penn: Due to mechanical problems on Marc 428, Marc 450 (510p WAS Dp) has been cancelled to rescue Marc 428. August 20, 2009 5:04 PM
Judging from past experience, my guess is there will be delays until at least 7:00 p.m. tonight on the Penn Line.

Frustrated with MARC delays? Voice your concerns to the MARC Riders' Advisory Council, which is meeting until 7:15 tonight at the Hall of States on 400 N. Captiol St. NW, D.C. The meeting, open to the public, will be held on the second floor of the hall.
