WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro says orange and silver line trains will soon begin stopping again at a station in Washington where a fire destroyed a power substation.

Interim general manager Jack Requa announced Thursday that the trains will begin servicing the Stadium-Armory station again on Monday. Since September, only blue line trains had stopped there.

Metro warned after the fire that service on the orange and blue lines would be affected for months while the substation was repaired. Service still won’t be back to normal on Monday. Orange and blue line trains will continue to run at 8-minute intervals during rush hour, rather than the usual 6 minutes.

Metro says its goal is to restore normal service by the end of the year.
