It hasn’t been a good week for Farragut North on the Red Line.
Just a day Four days after a debris fire on the Glenmont-bound tracks caused delays and single-tracking Monday Friday morning, we now have reports of smoke this morning at the same station, causing yet more single-tracking on the Shady Grove tracks between Judiciary Square and Dupont Circle, which is practically all of the Downtown segment of the Red Line.
(Don’t worry, Metro’s going to hire a contractor! He’ll save us!)
Watch WMATA’s advisories page for the situation. Anyone reading get stuck down there? Post a comment when you get back up into the daylight.
Update: I have just emerged from Dupont Circle, and the Red Line appears to be running normally again. Yay!
Update: I must have been stuck in some sort of temporal anomaly, because I thought the first fire was yesterday, when it was actually last Friday. Sorry, DC, and sorry, space-time continuum. I will try harder not to make your heads ache with my poor grasp of fourth dimension awareness.
