Effects of Monday's rainstorm on the OML
Author: Cumberland

Did CSX's Old Main Line suffer much distruction from Monday morning's torrential downpour? The Frederick, MD area received an excessive amount of rain, exceeding 5 inches of rain in some places.

Not sure about the OML, but the CSX (B&O) Howard St. Tunnel in B'more took a hit:

It's the Baltimore Sun, so take what you read with a grain of salt.
"All CSX and MARC trains were halted through the Howard Street Tunnel..."
In fact, no MARC trains use the Howard Street Tunnel.

....was wondering about that. :o

Not sure about the extent of damage to the tunnel, but Q138 was reversed at Cumberland (as an R138) and re-routed this morning, probably via Ashtabula/Buffalo/Selkirk and down.

Does CSX have an agreement to run single level trains via Amtrak Penn line into DC? And back into CSX
