A freight train derailment in Pacoima is forcing Metrolink to use buses between Burbank and both Newhall and the Antelope Valley, the agency said Tuesday morning.

Metrolink's Train 201 will be replaced by an MTA bus leaving Burbank at 6:47 a.m. to Lancaster, according to Metrolink's website. Another MTA bus will leave Newhall for Lancaster, the agency said.

No injuries or train damage has been reported due to the derailment.
