Penn Line Weekday Schedule Change: Feb. 13

Amtrak has notified MARC Train that there will be a schedule change on February 13 in order to permit a track maintenance project between West Baltimore and Odenton.  This work, much like maintenance on highways, is necessary to keep the train tracks in good working condition.  In addition to the changes listed below, all trains may experience 5-10 minute delays in the track work area.  We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR HALETHORPE AND BWI MARSHALL AIRPORT RAIL STATION PASSENGERS: All southbound trains will operate on the middle track for the duration of this project.  Amtrak will be installing metal platform extenders so that passengers have level boarding of trains.  It is very important that passengers remain on the concrete high level platform until the train comes to a complete stop and passengers detrain.  Please do not enter the metal platform extenders until the Conductors indicate that it is safe to do so.  This is not only for your safety but to minimize delays to the train. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
