Metrolink Remembers Chatsworth Tragedy on 10th Anniversary

Today marks 10 years since the devastating collision of Metrolink Ventura County Line train 111 and a Union Pacific freight train in Chatsworth on September 12, 2008. Twenty-five people lost their lives and another 135 were injured.

In remembrance of the lives lost and forever changed, our leadership, staff, elected officials, industry leaders, first responders and family members and friends gathered at L.A. Union Station.

During the event, speakers shared their stories about how the tragedy changed their lives and the impacts it made to Metrolink and the rail industry. The 25 who lost their lives were named and the bell from train 111 was rang for each person in their honor.

Today, and every day, we remember those we lost, those who were injured and those who were impacted and reaffirm our commitment to providing to be the safest railroad possible.
