Between Friday and Sunday I travelled from Chicago to San Francisco onboard Amtrak's California Zephyr. The 2nd longest rail trip possible in the USA it is scheduled to take a little over 52 hours to cover the 2438 miles between Chicago and Emeryville (Oakland).
Pictures from the trip are now available at: http://smu.gs/PChnlX

Enjoy!

Morning all,

Two batches from the USA Trip have now been uploaded.

The Los Angeles collection features photos from Hollywood, Downtown, Santa Monica and Universal Studios. There is only one rail related photo in this collection. L.A. doesn't really do rail transit but it is trying to slowly address this. http://smu.gs/NfWgC1

The 2nd collection is from the famous Cajon Pass area which is about 70 miles from L.A. on the I-15 road to Las Vegas. 35 minutes spent on Hill 582 saw six freights pass.
