    Due to downed overhead catenary wires south of Aberdeen, Amtrak and MARC train service was disrupted.

    Two of three tracks are open, according to Amtrak, but repairs continue on the third track.

    Amtrak riders should expect minimal delays between Baltimore and Wilmington.

    MARC train service north of Martin Airport was suspended for a time but has been restored Tuesday afternoon. Trains are serving Perryville, Aberdeen and Edgewood as normal.
