I believe they were single-tracking through Five Points and Peachtree Center this past weekend.

MARTA track fires will cost the agency $6.3M in emergency repairs. Good news is MARTA had planned to replace it's electrical system in a the coming years.

MARTA has redundant electrical systems, so rail service continues at those stations.

The back-to-back fires underscored the reality that MARTA’s 40-year-old rail system is still using its original electrical equipment. The agency plans to replace the systems powering its trains and stations beginning next year.

Took MARTA to the airport this weekend. It was a mess. Barely made my flight.

On July 22 a fire in an electrical cable vault sent smoke billowing into the Peachtree Center station, forcing an evacuation.

Going westbound they stopped for what they eventually diagnosed as an open door, and I think they were single tracking south—they stopped a couple of times (maybe west, too).

Taking DC’s metro to National going back, left a little early— just in case. Metro-ZIP!, TSA-ZIP! And now I get to wait 3 hours for my flight back home!
