Looks like the extra trains are Covina turns. They're also adding cars to the regular trains. Wonder if that's why 315 died with mechanical problems this morning requiring all passengers to transfer to 317 about 1/2 hour later?

Adding cars has pluses and minuses. Yes, the trains can carry more people. But they'll run slower because they can't accelerate as well. And there are limits, based on the length of platforms. Still, it's a useful move.

The ML Rider Info page about it for some reason is not highlighted at the home page. Found it via a news article. [metrolinktrains.com]
