Amtrak is warning travelers to expect major delays between Baltimore and Philadelphia because of overhead power line problems.

Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham says Northeast Corridor service was suspended between the two cities for more than two hours Tuesday morning because of a problem with power lines south of Wilmington, Del.  She says repairs are underway and should be resolved Tuesday morning.

Amtrak says wires are down near Perryville, Md.  Until the problem is fixed, Graham says Amtrak is running diesel locomotives through the area, but travelers should expect major delays. The first train, a northeast regional train, will be delayed by about three hours.

The Maryland Transit Administration is warning MARC commuters that Amtrak train 151 is delayed by 30 to 45 minutes.
