First Silver Line train pulls in to Wiehle-Reston East/Credit: Mike Heffner, Vita ImagesThe Silver Line is experiencing delays of about 30 minutes this morning after smoke was reported in the Metro tunnel in Arlington between the Ballston and Virginia Square Stations.

Metro says trains are single tracking in that area as a result.

The large emergency response comes after Monday’s fatal Metro incident outside the L’Enfant Metro station, in which smoke filled a disabled Metro train in a tunnel.

    Pathetic…I have stopped using the metro…..huge $$ savings

  • Yikes!

    Deep Purple will be upset for misusing their lyrics:
    “Smoke in the tunnel, fire in the eyes!”

    If one shows up with a gas mask at the Metro station after what has transpired now twice would you be afraid or would you ask where you can get one too?
