Trains on the MARC Penn Line were delayed by as much as an hour Wednesday after a locomotive got stuck on some debris south of Odenton.
According to an email alert from MARC, the locomotive of train 436 from Washington, DC, got stuck shortly before 6 p.m. after vandals placed debris on the track.
MARC rider John Nolan said in an email to Patch that the debris appeared to be a tire from tractor trailer.
Riders from train 436 were transferred to train 640.
Due to a lack of available equipment, MARC canceled train 449 from Baltimore. The next available train out of Baltimore was train 451, scheduled to depart at 7:35 p.m.
Train 640 left Odenton 47 minutes late, after picking up passengers from the disabled train 436.
