MARC reports 'major disruptions' on Brunswick Line
MARC is reporting "major disruptions," but few Baltimore-area riders should be affected because almost all the problems the MTA is reporting are on the Brunswick Line. The worst problem being reported on Baltimore-bound trains is a one-car deficit on one of the trains going to Perryville on the Penn Line. The Brunswick Line problems are being attributed largely to unspecified "police activity."
Here's the latest:
