[…] Highland Park Train-Auto Incident Interrupts Gold Line (The Source) […]
The whole time I was waiting on the Fillmore and S. Pasadena platforms between 6:40 and 7:15 this morning, the scrolling message board was warning us about upcoming delays on Saturday, June 25. There was no mention of the ongoing delay, nor were there any audio messages about it. When I boarded the south-bound train, there was an announcement that the final stop would be Highland Park (later revised to S. Pasadena), but there was no mention of how passengers might hope to get from the final stop to Union Station.
