Clean inside and great choices of available seats, train conductor was friendly and professional
Security sent me to get a paper ticket for train while in waiting area, the ticket was on my phone and I've used my phone before to show conductor. I stood in handicap line and the customer service person was helpful

How it took the stress out of driving to L.A.
The ticket lady was a bit sarcastic at my reaffirming her directions for me to find the right train track. She applauded me as if I was a child getting a award. I just looked at her if she was crazy and said "thank you."
Be early. I was amazed at how on time the train was.
