    No news on Metrolink’s bad day yesterday? At least one train was canceled, and trains were delayed about an hour during the evening commute.
    Word from beleaguered Metrolink staff yesterday was that a signal had failed at one of Metrolink’s big yards. The much promoted Metrolink twitter account went silent after 5 PM, leaving riders with no choice but to pester Metrolink conductors and spam their phone lines.

    @tm: Metrolink posts its Twitter alerts to route-specific accounts, see here for a list: http://www.metrolinktrains.com/news/?id=2941 Metrolink actually did a pretty good job of informing commuters of the delays.
