November 26, 2023- Visiting friendsAlbuquerque to Fullerton
Pros: Being able to walk around (not being stuck in a chair like on a plane) and also getting to watch the scenery without needing to watch the road (like driving). Cons: Notifying passengers the status of their train. I got to the station 20 minutes early as the website suggested, and only then did I find out via the amtrack attendant that the train was 90 minutes late. I would have liked to have known that before getting to the station. A text alert for if the train is on time or late would be really nice. Tips: BRING A BLANKET; THE CABIN GETS VERY COLD AT NIGHT.
