Service on MARC’s Penn Line was suspended ahead of the Wednesday rush after a person was fatally struck between the Seabrook and New Carrollton stations, authorities said.
The Penn Line service had resumed, including all northbound trains, by 5:45 p.m., but riders said they expected major delays in both directions, according to tweets.
In a statement, an Amtrak spokeswoman said Train No. 91, the Silver Star, struck a person trespassing on the tracks in Bowie, Md., about 2:30 p.m. There were no reported injuries to passengers or crew, according to the spokeswoman.
