Commuters are finding a different way into work for a second day after a weekend freight train derailment in Washington.

The Maryland Transit Administration is warning of "significantly reduced service" Tuesday on the MARC commuter rail Brunswick Line, which connects Washington to western Maryland and West Virginia. Trains on the line are expected to be very crowded.

Washington-bound trains are stopping in Silver Spring, Maryland, the station before the capital. Passengers continuing into Washington must transfer to the Metro rail system. In the afternoon, Brunswick Line trains will depart from Silver Spring instead of Washington.

CSX said late Monday that 15 of the 16 cars that derailed have been put back on tracks to be moved. The final car will be taken away by trailer.
