Trip by train to New Mexico
We left Sacramento at 6:00a.m.headed for Bakersfield where we transferred to a bus to get to Union Station, Los Angeles. Was interesting traveling through the valley because we saw all sorts of crops. This valley is big.
Union Station is beautiful and hugh. Not only is it a train station but it is the Metrolink station. So we saw lots of movement of communters and also train travelers.
After about 4 hours of waiting around we got on our train for Albuquerque, made a reservation for dinner in the dining car and changed our sleeping accomodations from a roomette to a room (shower & toilet included). So from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 p.m. the next morning we traveled in a lot of comfort.
