From 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., VRE trains to Fredericksburg will run at slower speeds because of the hot weather. Travelers going only a station or two from Washington won’t notice much of a delay, but by the end of the line in Fredericksburg, trains will be about 11 minutes behind schedule, the railway said.
