AIRPORT DISTRICT — A motorist on Tuesday morning narrowly escaped from her vehicle before it was smashed by an oncoming Metrolink train at a crossing on North Buena Vista and Vanowen streets in Burbank, authorities said. None of the 75 passengers or two crew were injured in what authorities described as a “horrendous collision,” Burbank Fire Capt. Ron Bell said. Operators shut down trains in both directions after the crash at 9:18 a.m., said Metrolink spokeswoman Angela Starr.

Josh Kleinbaum and Jackson Bell Alex Troffey doesn't go to Seattle too often. But when he does, he likes to take the two-day Amtrak train ride, leaving from the Glendale station. So, when Troffey decided on a May trip to the Emerald City, he called Amtrak. This time, he was rebuffed. The Coast Starlight, one of two Amtrak lines that stops in Glendale and heads up to Seattle, will cut Glendale out of its route on April 25 and instead pick up passengers in Van Nuys.

The Burbank Metrolink station and a train on which there was thought to be a  bomb have been cleared by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's bomb squad, Burbank police announced on Twitter just before 2 p.m. All of the roughly 20 passengers were back on board, and the train was headed to Union Station, according to the Tweet. A train coming from Lancaster was evacuated soon after a call came in at 12:36 p.m. regarding a possible bomb on the train at the station, located at 201 N. Front St., said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

A 53-year-old Lancaster man who claimed there was a bomb on a Metrolink train Tuesday was arrested after officials discovered he had an outstanding warrant, police said. The man, who was not immediately identified, reportedly told a female passenger there was a bomb on the train which was coming from the Antelope Valley, said Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn. However, what he said exactly was not immediately available, Ryburn added. The woman reported the comment to the train conductor, who called police at 12:36 p.m. The conductor stopped the train at the Burbank station, located at 201 N. Front St. The Metrolink station, Front Street and the Olive Street overpass were evacuated as the Los Angeles County Sheriff's bomb squad investigated the incident, police said.

A new Metrolink train station appears to be on track on the north side of Bob Hope Airport, connecting the airfield with the Antelope Valley. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority this week committed $1.75 million toward building the station at Hollywood Way and San Fernando Road. The station would be a significant addition to Metrolink's Antelope Valley line, said Don Sepulveda, executive officer for regional rail for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which would administer the project.

More than 100 Burbank residents and elected officials packed a community meeting on Wednesday in which representatives for the California High-Speed Rail Authority gave an update on where the massive project is at. Out of the three community open houses hosted by the rail authority, Burbank's generated the largest attendance with evenings in Palmdale and Santa Clarita bringing out only 30 to 50 people, organizers said. The event was organized into various stations to address specific inquiries.

Sitting at the Burbank Metrolink stop, waiting for a train to Union Station on my first day of jury duty, I realize why there are so many cars on the freeway and so few people waiting with me at the station. My Metrolink ticket cost $9. That’s right. The equivalent of 3 gallons of gas. After a quick stop at Glendale’s rustic, mission-style station, it’s only a few relaxing minutes to downtown L.A. There are few things more peaceful than watching the world pass by from inside a train.

Differing opinions on speeding picture Wow. It sure was lucky that your photographer, Dan Watson was on the south end of Mariposa Street to snap the picture of a car speeding by the slow-down warning (Residents driving in circles, April 2-3). The car almost looks to be on the other side of the street, too. Now let's be fair and publish a picture of an emergency vehicle (fire truck, paramedics) using valuable seconds to come to a complete stop at a speed bump before it can continue to a burning home or a person who is gasping for breath.
