Through Pismo Beach via Vandenberg Space station near Gaviota see some of the most scenic ocean views all the way through Santa Barbara to Oxnard. Turning inland around 6:00 the train goes past miles of orange groves then through Fillmore and Simi Valley to Glendale. At about 9:00 p.m. we will arrive in the heart of Los Angeles at the Union Station that you may recognize from many Hollywood films. Taxicabs to downtown locations cost about $20, twice as much to Hollywood, West Los Angeles, and Beverly Hills.

Riding through one of the largest vineyards we will come upon miles of broccoli, lettuce, flowers and berries. The train stops briefly in Salinas where John Steinbeck chronicled the transformation of Monterey country from the days of depression to the wealthier times. Staying north along the San Andreas fault line through Gilroy and Morgan Hill soon the artichoke and strawberry fields and green houses give way to the urban sprawl that emerges as we enter San Jose. Continuing along the east bay past the salt flats and marshes we will reach Oakland at 9:32 where the bus waiting for us takes us to San Francisco arriving just after 10:00 p.m.
