Here’s the news release from Metrolink:
LOS ANGELES – As part of its annual service, Metrolink will operate late night trains back to L.A. Union Station on both Saturday and Sunday nights from the Los Angeles County Fair (LACF), the largest county fair in the country. The service will begin this weekend and continue on Saturdays and Sundays throughout September.
The Saturday train will depart the Fairplex Station at 12:20 am (Sunday morning), while the Sunday train will depart at 10 p.m. back to L.A. Union Station. The new late night Metrolink service is made possible by funding from Metro.

In addition to the pair of late-night trains to L.A. Union Station, Metrolink’s San Bernardino Line trains will make special weekend stops at the Fairplex Station. All San Bernardino Line weekends trains will stop at the Fairplex Station except for trains 351, 352 and 353 on Saturday and train 351 on Sunday.
