Pointless Arrow

Trains Around California

It's been a long but fun day riding trains and visiting the California State Railroad Museum. I didn't even realize that on National Train Day, my same-day Amtrak ticket was a free admission to the CSRM, but that was a bonus.

Foolishly, I didn't spend the time on the train writing up what the day was like, which is a pity because it's nearly midnight here in Bakersfield and I really need to get to bed because I have to be up early enough to get breakfast and get back to the train station for a 10 AM train to Oakland.

Aside from the hiccups with the hotel, I've had a great time today and enjoyed the train travel immensely. I'll try to remember to write up the more interesting parts while riding back to the Bay Area tomorrow.

And I'm glad I'm riding in Spring rather than Summer, as it's already getting warm out here in the Valley.
