There’s the station and we’ll go in there in a second. Let’s go in the station and see what the station looks like Here’s the ticket counter at Portland Union Station. Look at all those trains
coming and going, this is a busy place So, I got back on the train and Portland
even though we have a really long stop it’s pretty cold outside so I thought you

warm and not catch a cold on my trip. Here we go, leaving Portland and here we are in Eugene OR, making a stop, picking up passengers, letting people off as we continue on to California tonight. It’s sprinkling out here a little bit and that’s okay let’s get back on the train and continue

    I was on this train about the same time you were, maybe we were on the same train. Amtraks cheese cake is good. Try it next time if you haven't already.

    Dear friend:
    In the next month of June, I will travel through the United States, start in Chicago with the Empire Builder in Seattle, from there I will take the Coast Starlight to Los Angeles and return from San Francisco in the California Zephir to Chicago. Any comments about it, information, videos, blogs, etc., will be very beneficial for my trip. From already thank you very much.
    Sincerely, Fausto Brindisi, from Rosario, Argentina.

    I would love to take my kids to San Francisco. I know they would love to go to Alcatraz. Is it possible to take the train and then the bus like you did and sightsee in San Francisco without renting a car and spending a small fortune on cabs, Uber, etc?
