Metro said Tuesday that nearly 300 of its rail cars will remain out of service until the agency can determine what caused a set of doors on an Orange Line train to open on its own shortly after the train left the Dunn Loring station on Sunday.
The incident, which involved the agency’s 3000-series rail cars, happened around 1 p.m. after the train left the station, and the incident was captured on video by a rider. Metro officials said they learned of the video Monday. The trains were pulled from service overnight Monday, and Tuesday morning, the transit agency announced that it had pulled all 284 cars from the series — roughly 15 percent of the agency’s 1200-car fleet — from service.
