Track obstruction north of Union Sta. delaying all MARC Penn Line trains. Apparently a pedestrian strike. Amtrak trains still listed as on time on the board, but maybe not for long. Could take Camden line or they're turning MARC trains at New Carrolton.

Amtrak app won't let me book a trip.

A real pain. I've got something at home where I really wanted to be home on time. I wonder what's the fastest way to get home.

All Amtrak NB out of DC also delayed. Amtrak NEC Twitter says it was a trespasser strike. I'm taking the Camden Line and light rail home. Amazingly I have a seat on this SRO Camden Line Train.

Seems like it was a day from hell on the Corridor with trains from VA heavily delayed due to the weather. And then 2172 hits a trespasser.

That's a popular area. Especially since they put the bike path along the Anacostia underneath it.


They say laughter is the best medicine. Obviously they never posted on AU.
