WASHINGTON (AP) — Travel troubles are easing in the Mid-Atlantic region in the wake of an ice storm.

Baltimore-Washington International Airport says airline operations were back to normal Wednesday afternoon after some morning delays and cancellations. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority says both Dulles and Reagan also have recovered from early disruptions.

The Maryland Transit Administration has reduced the number of afternoon trains out of Washington on the MARC Brunswick line after a troublesome morning. Spokesman Paul Shepard tells The Frederick News-Post that two morning trains hit fallen trees on the tracks. He says no one was hurt in either incident.

Shepard says passengers from the first affected train were transferred to a later train. Then that train hit a fallen tree and passengers were transferred again.
