Safety Blog: Trains, Tracks and Cameras
Train tracks may seem like a romantic location for a photo op, but there are real dangers to posing on or near the rails. At Metrolink, we are committed to making sure that everyone on or near our trains and property is safe. This includes our passengers, motorists at rail crossings and community members. Taking pictures or video near Metrolink trains or right-of-way property can be hazardous. Please be aware of Metrolink’s policy for photographers and video recordings.
When taking pictures or including Metrolink trains or tracks in your videos:
- Stay off Metrolink right of way property. This includes tracks and the adjacent property, bridges, tunnels, signal towers and facilities
- At passenger stations, always stand behind the line while on the platform
- Obey all safety rules, regulations and instructions provided by law enforcement and Metrolink employees
Violators are subject to a citation for trespassing on railroad property.
