The 53-car Circus Train has just passed through Fullerton on its long trek to San Diego. Since it is such a low-priority train, it is not expected to arrive in San Diego until late tonight. We'll keep you updated about the location of the train through the night.

By all accounts, the Circus Train is currently proceeding down Metrolink's Orange County Subdivision. At this point, it has not yet entered single-track territory. However, when it does, a substantial amount of time will be lost, since it must wait in every single siding for every single passing train. For that reason, BNSF does not expect the Circus Train to arrive into San Diego until 1 AM PDT. We regret that we cannot provide any further up-to-the-minute updates, since the Circus Train is no longer going over track owned by the BNSF Railway, the railroad that allowed us to trace the train.
