The revamped Acton station was a nod to Acton’s rural design and “old homestead” feel.
With funding from LA Metro, Caltrans and the California Transportation Committee (CTC), Metrolink built a second platform, a pedestrian at-grade crossing, a crossover and an extension of almost 5,000 feet to the existing Vincent Siding.
