Adam Tuss, Nick Guy Nellie, Maritza Ramirez discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News


5 22? Well, we are all looking forward to a fun and relaxing July 4th weekend, but as we've been telling you here the last couple of days, metro says if you're heading down to the mall for the big fireworks show Monday, expect delays of up to an hour and some overcrowding on the trains to and from NBC four transportation reporter Adam tuss joined us earlier and he talked about part of the reason for this and that's fewer railcars or on the line. Well, right now they're only running 8 trains max of those 7000 series railcars. That is way, way less than they normally have. So we're not going to be seeing any sort of capacity increased because of those 7000 series. And as a matter of fact, metro says it doesn't expect to have those full complement of railcars back until later this summer. So for the 4th of July, not going to be counting on the 7000 series to get you around. So that's going to be an ongoing issue. And you know, if you really want to talk about what's going on with those, you know, metro is having to measure the wheels on those trains every single day after their in service to make sure that the wheels aren't pushing out because don't forget guys, they still haven't identified the root cause of the problem with those 7000 series railcars and they're fixed right now is more or less to just see what the railcars look like at the end of the day, measure them and make sure that the wheels haven't moved. Of course, metro will be open from 7 in the morning until midnight on July 4th. 5 24 a longtime employee of an assisted living facility in Montgomery county has been charged with theft here's WTO's Nick guy Nellie.
