RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Trains can be delayed for many reasons, but Metrolink passengers on the commuter railroad’s Riverside Line found their trains were running up to 30 minutes late on Tuesday evening for an unusual reason: wiring had been stolen from the lineside signals.

According to the Riverside Press-Enterprise, Metrolink spokeswoman Sylvia Novoa said copper wiring was stolen from signals on the Union Pacific route between the City of Industry and Montebello, leading to the delays.

Metrolink’s Riverside Line sees 12 trains daily in Monday-through-Friday service.
