Watch: Metrolink Deploys Earthquake Early-Warning Tech - Railway Age

This is good news.  Once an earthquake is detected the RR's PTC system will initiate all trains to brake to a stop.  Cannot find more info but if not now the PTC system could brake your train at a safe spot.  ie not on bridges or in tunnels.
