<VIDEO>     BURKE, Va. (AP) - Officials say a package containing thought to be human remains has been found on VRE train tracks near Burke, Va.
 
     Virginia Railway Express officials say the remains were found on tracks on Manassas Park. The area was shut down and four VRE trains were stopped.
 
     Buses were brought to transport train riders. VRE said delays of two hours were possible and urged some riders on stopped trains to have someone pick them up.
 
   Thursday morning, Manassas Park police spokeswoman Karen Barton said in a press release the remains found inside the package are "not believed to be human," but investigators are waiting for the medical examiner's official findings to say for certain.
