MARC Brunswick Line Collision

Are you a MARC commuter using the Brunswick Line? Get set for what might be some serious delays tonight: MARC Train 871 hit a tractor carrying a bulldozer in Gaithersburg at 2:30 PM, blocking both tracks. Of thirty-five passengers, one was treated on the scene and another brought to a hospital with neck pain, while the two train engineers were treated on-site.

The 884 and 881 have been canceled, 879 is holding till 6PM and will make all local stops, and Frederick riders are being advised to take the 991 Commuter Bus from Shady Grove Metro. As of 4:22 PM MTA said earliest estimate for open track was 5 PM, but the page hasn’t been updated yet.

Any on-the-spot updates from MARC Brunswick riders?

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
