Cracked Rail Forces Single Tracking on Green Line

Metro’s Green Line was forced to operate on a single track Friday morning due to a cracked rail between Fort Totten and Prince George’s Plaza.

Metro said on its Twitter feed that single tracking started at about 7 a.m., due to an incident outside West Hyattsville. Some trains forced to offload and turn back. The single tracking stopped at about 8 a.m., but there were residual delays on the Green Line.
