Heading home!

The Pacific Sunliner Train #774 pulled out of Santa Barbara's Amtrak Station 15 minutes late. Only 8 minutes later we were traveling next to the beach, which is sooooo gorgeous!

12 Noon - San Diego/Camp Pendleton Fire!
Amtrak halted my train when we arrived at Union Station in Los Angeles. There is a huge fire burning in San Diego County. However, Amtrak dispatched another train only 3 hours later. This train left Los Angeles bound for San Diego at 3pm. Strange. But true!

According to internet news, the fire continues at this time, and is only 25% contained. We passengers are hoping for the best. Only time will tell !!


  1. Great picture! Just think of all the poor people down there in those cars that cannot enjoy the scenery like you can up there ! Good choice you made :-)

  2. I agree with Vera - such a nice and sophisticated way to travel. So sorry that it's such an expense for us automobile-driven people. I received your email and will answer via email. Glad to hear from you.

  3. Great photos! We've been hearing about that fire on the news... hoping all is well. I LOVE Amtrak, but somehow have missed going on that particular train. The Sunset Limited yes... but not the one you're on down there in the southern part. I'd love it!

  4. I was wondering about you and this fire! glad you're on the train...

  5. I'm truly happy for you, that you're able to get out and about, my friend. Blessings... Lynn

  6. Hi, George. I know John and Mimi live near San Diego. Sure do hope they are far from that fire! Please let us know. Hoping all is well with you!
