LOS ANGELES — Southern California’s Metrolink railroad will be running its special prom train service from Orange County for the first time this weekend.

The regional commuter rail system says more than 300 students from Los Amigos High School in Fountain Valley will travel Saturday from Santa Ana station to their prom at historic Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

Metrolink provides prom trains to relieve safety concerns about students driving.

With Saturday’s run, the six-county passenger service will have transported more than 1,300 prom-goers this year.
