This morning, there was a "track problem" at Federal Triangle, causing the Blue and Orange Lines to share one track between McPherson Square and Smithsonian.
"Track problem" can mean anything, but TBD reports that a power cable needed to be "changed out" at Federal Triangle.
The Red Line, however, was also apparently a disaster. One person on twitter, @bptracey, tweeted this photo of the Gallery Place Station in Penn Quarter at 9 a.m.:
TBD reports that the red line delays were the result of two trains being removed from service for mechanical problems at the Grosvenor station between 7:15 and 7:35 a.m. That's quite a swarm of people two hours later far from the Gosvenor station that makes us wonder what is really going on?
