WASHINGTON (AP) — The Maryland Transit Administration has canceled service on two MARC commuter trains and Virginia Railway Express trains are running on a modified schedule following heavy snowfall in the mid-Atlantic region.

The MTA says there will be no service on the Camden and Brunswick lines on Thursday. The Camden Line runs between Baltimore and Washington, and the Brunswick Line extends from Washington to Martinsburg, W.Va. It says the Penn Line, which runs from Washington through northeastern Maryland, also will operate on a modified holiday schedule.

Virginia Railway Express trains are also running on a modified schedule.

On Wednesday night MTA put about 10 passengers up in a hotel after power lines blocked its Brunswick rail line. MTA was arranging to drive the passengers home.
