An Amtrak train fatally struck two CSX workers and injured a third on its way into Union Station late Tuesday, crippling service between D.C. and Philadelphia along the northeast corridor and delaying MARC service into the District.
MARC Camden and Penn lines continue to operate with limited service. Service is suspended on the Penn line south of New Carrollton, and West of Greenbelt on the Camden Line. MARC Passengers can utilize Metro’s Green and Orange Lines, which will honor tickets. Trains delays on both lines range from 5 to 60 minutes.
