MTA apologizes for delays, disruptions on Brunswick, Camden MARC lines

June 10, 2008

BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Maryland Transit Administration is apologizing to customers for recent delays and cancelations of MARC trains.

Officials blame weather and unforeseen problems for the disruptions.

The agency says intense heat caused a kink Monday on the Camden line that created delays on that line and slowed the delivery of repaired Penn line and Brunswick line locomotives. Without those engines, two Penn line departures from D.C. had to be canceled. Ongoing track work and heat-related freight train congestion backed up traffic on the Brunswick line.

Camden line service was canceled early Tuesday after a tanker truck spilled fuel near tracks in south Baltimore between the MARC train yard and Camden station. The MTA announced limited "holiday" service would be available on the Camden line for Tuesday afternoon.

Service on the Brunswick line was canceled Thursday after a storm brought trees down on the tracks.
