Fox5DC: Safety concern over Metro’s 4000-series railcars “A possible safety concern has resulted in Metro to reorganize all of its 4000-series railcars in its fleet. On Thursday afternoon, Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld initially ordered the removal of all 4000-series railcars from service effective immediately after engineers found an potential issue with the railcar’s automatic train control (ATC) system. However, Metro later clarified its plan and said they will continue to use the 4000-series railcars as long as they are not operated as the lead car and are only used in the center of trains. Doing so would not pose as a safety threat, according to Metro.”
