In a move to possibly freak everyone out and accept proposed fare increases, Metrolink next week will consider cuts to over 50 trains. That includes all Orange County weekend service, 10 weekday trains on the Ventura County Line and various other trains. As Metro's Steve Hymon notes, "most of the cuts are aimed at trains that run on weekends, outside rush hour on weekdays or trains that travel in opposite direction of rush hour traffic on weekdays."

Still, this would be frustrating if it happened. And scores of Disneyland fans will be disappointed on the weekends. All the cuts can be seen here on this public hearing notice (.pdf).
