The second leg of our train adventure has been quite enjoyable. The train is travelling at a good speed and we have made up some of the lost time due to the delay leaving Los Angeles yesterday afternoon.
We have made several stops since leaving LA. The train is 100% smoke free which we love. Every few hours they have stops where you can detrain for a few minutes to have a cigarette or grab some fresh air (away from the ...
