Metrolink ‘cab cars’ set for November delivery
COLTON--Safety on Metrolink trains will be ramped up with the arrival of the first ‘cab cars’.
The first two will arrive in November from South Korea and taken to Colton and outfitted.
The specially built cars will go into service next year some five years after eleven people were killed in a crash involving two Metrolink trains in Glendale.
Montclair Mayor Paul Eaton, a member of Metrolink’s Board of Directors, says special safety features will be built into future passenger cars.
“There will be more than 80, not just ‘cab cars’ but all cars.”
And, Eaton made this promise, “These cars will be the safest anywhere in the country.”
Metrolink is spending $138 million to replace the ‘cab cars’ which are placed at the head of trains that are being pushed. (INT)
