ANAHEIM, CA, Thursday, June 19, 2003: Inland Empire baseball fans will be able to take the train to the Anaheim Angels game on July 12th – the Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) is partnering with the 2002 World Champion Anaheim Angels and Metrolink to offer Imagination Speedway express train service from San Bernardino to Edison Field to see the Angels play the Minnesota Twins.
