    Delays of up to an hour on the Red Line this morning are over after Metro crews repaired part of the track that was damaged when a piece of equipment derailed near Union Station.

    Trains were single-tracking between Judiciary Square and New York Ave-Florida Ave-Gallaudet stations.  Metro said full service was restored at about 8:15 a.m.

    The track equipment, called a "Petibone," was on the track headed in the direction of Glenmont at 4:23 a.m. It was re-railed about an hour later, and workers made the necessary repairs, Metro said. There were no injuries.
