WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro is making some service changes to try to minimize lingering problems from a fire at a power substation last week.

Starting Tuesday, rush-hour trains on the orange and silver lines won’t stop at the Stadium-Armory station in southeast Washington. Only blue line trains will stop there during the morning and rush hour until further notice.

Last week’s fire led to major delays on the blue, orange and silver lines. Since then, trains have been running through that station at reduced speeds, which can cause delays on all three lines.

Metro says it will take more than six months to tear down and rebuild the damaged substation. In the meantime, power is being fed to Stadium-Armory from other substations.
