Go follow them on twitter and ask. That's my suggestion.

It's been a long time since I've had this much hassle.

Single tracking between Noma and Judiciary due to fire dept activity at Union station. It had been resolved at about the time I entered metro. I was just dealing with residual delays.

Start of rush hour. 5pm. Trains running 5 minute headways instead of normal 2 minutes. Next train is a 6 car train, not an 8 car train. It's the sardine can express. No wonder Uber is killing Metro. What's happening? Not a normal rush hour.
WMATA schedules four minute headways only on the Red Line between Grosvenor and Silver Spring during rush hour, with eight minutes on all other lines. Trains usually don't run exactly at these intervals, but a five minute headway for the Red Line is pretty good for Metro these days, actually, especially when there were residual delays.
Amtrak travel so far: only 11,218 miles: Springfield Shuttle (13), Northeast Regional (28), Acela (1), Lake Shore Limited (2), Pennsylvanian (2), Capitol Limited (1)
Ambus mileage (3 trips): 108
Other rail transit: WMATA (~900 miles), Metro-North, MTA, MBTA (Subway and Commuter Rail), Metra, CTA, RTA
