Pros: The staff was very nice and good about explaining seating arrangements and assistance getting my 2 pieces of luggage on board the train. Very good communication with passengers. Cons: Better signage at the train stops to help arriving passages to know where to go to get to passenger pickup area. Anaheim station was not well marked and no one to ask about where to go. Tips: Get you prepaid e-ticket printed out before going to the train station.
