Trains were halted after a freight train struck and killed a pedestrian on the tracks north of the Garrett Park station between Rockville and Silver Spring.
MARC trains are running at reduced speeds with delays up to an hour and a half.
Montgomery County fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says the fatal accident happened around 6:20 a.m. Wednesday.
Metrorail honored all MARC tickets Wednesday.
