Morning trains on MARC lines to have 'quiet cars'


All morning trains to Washington on the Maryland Rail Commuter Camden and Brunswick lines will have designated "quiet cars" beginning Monday, the state announced yesterday.

MARC Penn Line trains through the 8:10 a.m. departure have quiet cars. Starting Monday, Penn Line train 424, which leaves Washington at 3:34 p.m. for Baltimore, will become the first afternoon train with a quiet car.

MARC began designating quiet cars on some trains in January, and they proved popular. Passengers on a quiet car, usually the last car on a train, are asked to turn off cell phones and pagers and keep conversations hushed. Children are not allowed.
