Some Metrolink passengers bused after freight train derailment
The derailed freight train on northbound Union Pacific tracks, which Metrolink uses, still had not been moved after its derailment Monday night, officials said. No injuries were reported in the incident.
Early southbound morning commute trains from Lancaster to Union Station would experience 10- to 15-minute delays, said Laura Magness, a Metrolink spokeswoman.
The affected trains are 201 and 203, Magness said.
Later in the morning, two southbound trains from Lancaster (8:55 a.m. departure) and Via Princessa in the Santa Clarita Valley (8:52 a.m. departure) will be replaced with buses to Burbank, where passengers will be placed on trains to Union Station, Magness said.
