MISSION VIEJO...As the City of Mission Viejo reported, Metrolink announced Wednesday, Sept. 15th., that it is suspending rail service to the San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente and Oceanside stations starting September 16 for emergency  track work to stabilize the right-of-way in the San Clemente area and ensure the safety of its operations. The suspended service will affect trains on the Orange County and Inland Empire-Orange County lines.
