Metrolink passengers saw a few new faces Thursday while waiting for their commute as the Los Angeles County Fair petting zoo will take over the East Portal of Union Station.
From 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., baby animals such as goats, bunnies, a miniature pony and a calf were on display to greet passengers and encourage people to take the Metrolink on weekends to the fair.
After the meet and greet with a few beloved faces from the fair, the animals will board train 304 and head back to the petting zoo.
