MARC Train is closely monitoring the continuing--and in many cases worsening--winter storm. Passengers should expect greater than usual crowds on early afternoon trains. Boarding will be stopped at Union Station when trains reach a safe capacity. At this late stage, we are unable to add any additional railcars or trains to the schedule. En route train delays are likely due to slick conditions and the possibility of downed trees and power lines. The first and foremost goal of MARC, Amtrak, Bombardier, and CSX is to get you home safely. We thank you in advance for your patience if the t

Amtrak has notified MARC Train that the trackwork taking place on the Penn Line between Odenton and West Baltimore stations will be completed by Sunday, November 18.

We regret any inconvenience these delays may cause and thank you for riding MARC Train.
Attention Union Station MARC passengers: One of the Washington Metrorail escalators at the 1st Street exit from the Union Station Metro station (the one at the far end of the platform) is out of service. There is only one escalator available for passengers exiting and entering the station, and it will take longer to exit the Metro station and walk to your MARC Train. MARC passengers should allow extra time to exit the Metrorail station, or use the exit at the center of the Metrorail station platform. There is no estimate from Metrorail for the escalator repair at this time.
