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.

By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer A special MARC train on Memorial Day will commemorate the 125 years of history of the Brunswick Line. The 750 tickets for the train, priced at $10, have sold out. Special programs are planned Monday afternoon at the Brunswick Museum and at several stops on the line, including Rockville, where Maryland Gov. Parris Glendening will speak. The train will arrive from Union Station in Brunswick at 2:45 p.m. and depart at 4:30 p.m. The Metropolitan Branch of the old B&O Railroad evolved into the Brunswick Line, which is now a part of CSX. The railroad was the catalyst for Montgomery County's evolution from a largely rural, agriculture-oriented county to the original suburb of Washington, D.C. Suburbs such as Kensington, Takoma Park and Garrett Park clustered along the rail line, and tourist areas including Forest Glen and Glen Echo formed.
