Metrolink riders taking the Antelope Valley Line should prepare for delays of up to 40 minutes this weekend due to scheduled track work. 

Fewer trains will run on the route on Sept. 23 and 24, according to Metrolink. There are usually 12 trains, but this weekend there will be only four with two running in each direction: 262, 263, 270 and 271. 

Each train will travel either from Lancaster to Union Station and vice versa. Bus service will be available between Vincent Grade/Acton and Newhall.
