WASHINGTON – Virginia Railway Express restored Manassas Line service just before 7:30 a.m. after a freight train struck a pedestrian near Manassas, Virginia.

VRE had advised passengers to find an alternate way to work.

VRE says trains 330 and 332 are expected to run on time.

VRE spokesman Brian Jungwirth says trains will run every 10 minutes.

Initially, around 5:30 a.m. VRE said the delays would be an hour, but then tweeted otherwise.

The pedestrian was struck overnight in the 8500 block of Quarry Road in Manassas, police say.
