WMATA WATCH: Blue/Orange Line Mired in Delays

A Blue Line train was stuck for nearly an hour between the Rosslyn and Arlington Cemetery stations during the middle of yesterday's morning rush hour.

From The Washington Post:
It took 51 minutes to move the train because the area inside the train where the controls to release the brakes are housed was locked, and the operator did not have the key, [WMATA spokeswoman Lisa] Farbstein said. She said it is highly unusual for the control box to be locked. The operator had to climb out and release the brakes from outside the train, she said.
