Train Service Reopened Between D.C. & Baltimore

WASHINGTON (WJZ/AP) — Amtrak and commuter train service between Washington and Baltimore have been reopened after being suspended earlier Friday because of sagging overhead power lines.

Amtrak says passengers can still expect delays.

Maryland Transit Administration spokesman Terry Owens says the problem occurred around 7:30 a.m. Friday near Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. He says the power lines became entangled with part of a MARC commuter train and began to sag. The train became disabled, and all subsequent MARC trains on the Penn Line had been halted.

The Camden Line, which uses different tracks,was operational.
