METROLINK
LOS ANGELES — Even with clear skies and sunshine, railroads can experience track delays. According to an article in the Ventura County Star, Metrolink commuter trains are experiencing 10 to 45 minute delays early this week due to a southern California heat wave. The 50-mph-speed restrictions are affecting trains in Ventura and five other southern California counties.

“Anytime there are extreme temperatures, whether high or low, we implement restrictions,” says Metrolink spokesperson Sherita Coffelt.

The agency also tells the newspaper it has beefed up rail inspections in southern California as a result of the excessive heat. Some of the speed restrictions were expected to last into Tuesday.
