MARC train service restored for afternoon commute

September 17, 2014|By Kevin Rector | The Baltimore Sun

Afternoon MARC service to Perryville and Aberdeen will be restored for the afternoon commute, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.

Service to the two northern-most stations, canceled since a freight train damaged catenary wires and utility poles along the Northeast Corridor on Tuesday, will begin again with the No. 520 MARC train set to depart Washington's Union Station at 12:20 p.m., the MTA said.

Amtrak service between Washington and Wilmington had also been suspended on Tuesday, but single-tracking was restored Tuesday afternoon.

The MTA reported major MARC train delays Wednesday morning, due in large part to the ongoing repairs by Amtrak crews.

All southbound MARC trains on Wednesday morning were forced to originate at the Edgewood Station.
