WASHINGTON (AP) — Metro is warning of major disruptions on the red line after a train with no passengers aboard derailed overnight.

Metro says the train being moved from one rail yard to another derailed around midnight Thursday between the Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland stations. No injuries were reported.

No trains are operating between the Fort Totten and NoMa-Gallaudet stations Friday morning. During the morning rush hour, trains are operating about every six minutes between the Shady Grove and NoMa-Gallaudet stations and between Glenmont and Fort Totten. Shuttle buses are available between affected stations.

Metro says the derailment damaged track equipment, including the third rail and signal cables, near the Rhode Island station and it's not clear when normal service will be restored.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
