CA Train Series #1 & #2

I absolutely love trains! Who else is a train buff? The rhythmic sound of the tracks, being able to watch life pass– it’s hypnotic and a great time to be self-reflexive! Simply put, it’s one of my favorite ways to travel. It has issues, don’t get me wrong (I was once stuck for over 5 hours on a track!) but I still love it!

I have probably taken over 100 or more Amtrak trains from 1999 to the present! I used to take either the Coast Starlight or the San Joaquin every break during my undergraduate studies at UCSB from Santa Barbara to Oakland. Now in PhD program, I still take the train in CA to go home for breaks!

Here are links to pictures I took while traveling on Amtrak’s San Joaquin in December and January.
