Fullerton Railroad Days 2015 5/2/2015

by Chris Guenzler

Robin picked me up at 7:30 AM on this first May Saturday and drove us down to the Santa Ana station where he parked in the parking structure. I had gotten my ticket on-line but Robin had to visit the station agent to get his. We took the elevators over to Track 1 and waited for our train from Irvine to arrive. Due to track work in San Diego County nothing is running on Amtrak south of Irvine and Metrolink south of San Juan Capistrano. We boarded the cab car of Pacific Surfliner 763 for a quick trip to Fullerton although we waited for an eastbound BNSF freight before we arrived. We then went to the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation booth to help out.
