Derek Douglas tweets us:

“More issues on Red Line-Dupont. Smoke seen and smell of electrical fire.”

WMATA tweeted:

“Silver Spring-bound Red Line train offloading at Dupont Circle, brake problem. Next train at Woodley Park. 8:42a”

“Disabled train at Dupont Circle moving off the line, expect delays as trains resume spacing. 8:46a”

    A few minutes after 9 there were Red Line delays in the other direction. After sitting at Gallery Place for 15 minutes my Shady Grove bound train offloaded. The platform was dangerously overcrowded. I got onto the second train to come through (I was in the first car so there was more space). From Twitter it looks like the third Shady Grove bound train after mine offloaded as well.

    And yet there is a 7000-series train on the other track…
