Aboard The Southwest Chief In Union Station

A quick Metro ride from the hotel to the Amtrak station. As of today it's required to buy a "tap card" so we ended up paying $2.50 each for our tickets and a tip to the needy gentleman who volunteered to show us how the machine worked.

In other words it cost us about as much as the taxi did last night but it was another new experience. Who knew decades ago that L.A. would eventually have a subway system.

We're aboard the Southwest Chief sitting in the station and perhaps bootlegging an Internet signal from another train. We're looking forward to the ride and Albuquerque in the morning.
