A tree fell across the railroad tracks at the Garrett Park station this morning.
The commuter rail station is a stop on the MARC train’s Brunswick Line, which normally makes six daily stops at Garrett Park.
The tree blocked the tracks and left the train unable to pass.
Per reader Mary Catherine Allin, “The lights you see are from the Capitol Limited heading to Union Station from Chicago. A helpful neighbor with his chain saw and the train crew were able to clear the tracks so they could get by. They were delayed for maybe an hour.”
