Man Struck by Train, MARC Routes To/From D.C. Disrupted
BALTIMORE, Md. (CBSDC) – A freight rain struck a person walking on the tracks in Baltimore affecting train service to and from D.C. stations.
A man was walking on the tracks between Camden Station and St. Denis around 2:30 p.m. when a CSX train struck him, closing the railroad for the immediate future.
The Maryland Transit Administration says tracks in Baltimore are still blocked preventing Train 853 from departing for Washington at 3:45 p.m.
MARC has secured buses to represent Train 853, with one making its scheduled stops and dropping passengers at Greenbelt. Another bus will operate non-stop to Greenbelt, where Metro will honor MARC tickets.
The first two departures from Union Station – 4:13 p.m. and 4:43 p.m. – will likely depart on time, but will turn around and head back to D.C. at Dorsey.
Camden Station passengers heading to Greenbelt, College Park or D.C. are encouraged to use the MARC Penn Line, with trains departing Baltimore at 3:20 p.m., 3:45 p.m. and 4:50 p.m.
Greenbelt and College Park-bound riders can transfer to a Metrobus F6 route at New Carrollton.
