This is the best shot I was able to manage, given the limitations of the camera phone and my lack of expertise with it. This shot is as the train was pulling in to Fremont Centerville station. The grade crossing ahead is Fremont Boulevard, with the station building and platform beyond that on the left.
Alas, the actual best seat would be the one facing forward, but the ACE crew rope off the forward bay-of-4-seats for their "office" (that's one of their bags in the photo above, and their paperwork is on the table). The only seats accessible to paying passengers face backwards, so in order to get this shot, I had to perch on my knees on the backward-facing seat. That wasn't too bad for the roughly 15 minutes or so it takes to go from Great America to Fremont, but wouldn't be so much fun for a longer trip.
