Instead of being scrapped, one of the train cars involved in the 2005 Metrolink crash that killed 11 people was donated to the Los Angeles Fire Department for training purposes. As evident by these photos from LAist Featured Photos contributor OxDx (also of LA Taco), it's not a high security area. A crew hit the train, but also someone with more... political inclinations of sorts.
