The Train . . .

For my trip home from Seattle I opted to take the Amtrak Coast Starlight.  The trip on the train takes about twenty two hours.  

I boarded the train in Seattle at 9:45 am on Thursday and arrived back in Oakland at 8:45 am the next day.  

Because I had paid for a "Roomette" on the sleeper car, all my meals on the train were included.  Below are some pictures I took along the route home.


  1. What a great experience! Welcome home!

  2. nice pix just jon; but i think according to those hours of departure and arrival, the trip takes about 23 hours. math was never one of your strong points, maybe. whose counting anyways?
    yes welcome back, and thanks for sharing your highlights.
    love, mom

  3. was it so worth it? i think trains seem so cool, but am worried about them not actually being as cool in real-life.
