Hundreds of Ventura County residents who use Amtrak service between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles may be forced to find other transportation if a rail contract can't be negotiated, officials said Tuesday. The labor dispute involves freight carriers. But some passenger lines, such as those operated by Amtrak, could be disrupted as soon as today because they run on tracks owned by freight railroads. In Ventura County, Amtrak runs on lines owned by Southern Pacific.

Simi Valley resident Mildred Musil planned to catch a 9:20 a.m. to Santa Barbara on Wednesday, but instead ended up driving to her travel agent's office to ask for a refund on her $51 train ticket. Musil, 80, and many other Ventura County residents were forced to change their travel plans at the last minute Wednesday because of the nationwide rail strike.
