It looks like #wmata may be single-tracking between Forest Glen and Silver Spring due to an earlier report of a possible fire on the inbound track. Delays, both directions.
Red Line trains are running again in both directions between Forest Glen and Silver Spring. No single-tracking, but delays up to 15 minutes (there was a track crew in the area with access to the tracks, causing some trains to hold).

Follow up walking inspections by #wmata ERT crews didn't turn up anything burnt or signs of burning.

The ROCC has declared a "Code 34" - meaning that Rail Traffic Controllers are blind and cannot remotely see where trains are. This is *not* an imminent safety risk - the underlying ATC system continues to work - but may cause some train delays.
The MetroHero data access to the #wmata APIs also appears to be affected.
It sounds like the #wmata ROCC is able to see where trains are and can remotely set signals again (as of 4:58p).

.@dcmetrohero data appear to confirm and show that neither D31 @Metrobusinfo trip ran this morning.
(wmata.com/schedules/time…) #wmata
I defer to @dcmetrohero on the accuracy of the data, but it appears #wmata @Metrobusinfo has missed about ~100-140 bus trips over the past 3 hours this morning across its network.

The #wmata Board has waived parking fees at Shady Grove and Rockville while the stations are closed.
The #wmata OIG office reviewed & said several legacy "mission critical" programs don't have modernization plans.

Apparently the names of these programs is so sensitive that they're not willing to say which are lacking these plans.
