Yesterday I took the Goon Squad to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. We took Metro down with a couple of friends from out of town. We had a great time and again took the train back. Our trip was uneventful, but at 2:45 a metro train on the Orange Line jumped the track.
At 2:45 we were on the Orange Line. According to my calculations it was the train that came right behind ours. About 4 minutes into our trip they started making odd announcements about “single line trains” but I didn’t think anything of it. I knew they were having some switching problems on some of the other lines so I figured it was related to those delays.
As far as I can tell nobody was seriously injured but my kids were with me and the train behind us derailed. That just freaks me out.
