Metrolink Trains Restored to Normal Speeds
Metrolink service was restored to normal speeds at 4:00 p.m. this afternoon, according to Denise Tyrrell, Public Information Officer for the transit agency. "Afternoon commuters are cautioned to anticipate 15-30 minutes delays as we recover from earlier service delays," she said in an e-mail. Interruptions and delays occurred earlier today because all tracks had to undergo mandatory post-earthquake inspection.
