Status on track repairs at San Clemente on Surfliner route
"Freight rail service between San Diego and Orange counties stopped for two days last week because of a slow-moving landslide in San Clemente that is pushing the railroad tracks toward the ocean." "The tracks have moved more than 28 inches laterally toward the ocean since September 2021, according to OCTA measurements. Most of the movement occurred in late 2021 and was corrected in the previous repair work."
“Construction began on the repairs last week and is expected to last approximately 90 days, which could mean into February,” OCTA spokesman Eric Carpenter said Monday. “Discussions will take place in December about when to safely restore passenger service ... which could possibly happen before the entire construction phase is complete,” Carpenter said. “Those discussions will involve OCTA, Metrolink and the LOSSAN rail authority, which oversees Amtrak service.”

According to the Metrolink website, M-F there is no Metrolink service south of Laguna Niguel. On Sa and Su there is Metrolink service all the way to San Clemente Pier.
Amtrak is still not running between Irvine and Oceanside but there is a bus bridge provided.
Freight to and from San Diego is still running during the overnight hours.
