DC’s Metro puts older cars back into use due to derailment-related delays

Subway riders have experienced waiting times as long as 40 minutes since mid-October after a single car on a Blue Line train slipped off the tracks outside Arlington Cemetery Station. The independent Washington Metrorail Safety Commission ordered the agency to tow its 7,000-series vehicles, and the transit agency has since relied on about 25 percent of its cars. They are working to bring older model 2000, 3000 and 6000 series trains into the mix.
