MARC Camden Lines Could Be Affected by Possible Freight Railroad Workers Strike

The Maryland Transit Administration is already making plans in event that a strike is called by those who work for CSX Freightlines, the railroad whose tracks MARC trains use.  According to media reports, a tentative agreement was rejected Wednesday by one of the railroad unions. If a deal isn't reached the first nationwide rail strike will begin on Friday. Amtrak has already canceled some services in other parts of the country, and MARC is urging commuters to consider other transportation alternatives. But, the MTA has announced the following steps will be taken should a strike be called:
