Day 2 - Meeting the Train

Due to some security issues we were not able to spend Thursday night on the train so we spent Thursday night at the Marin Headlands hostel Marin Headlands Hostel.

We left the hostel by 7 am and everyone was eager to head to the train.
But first a stop for another view of the Golden Gate bridge…

…then headed over to Emeryville Station to board the train.

At 9 am the Amtrak train pulled into the station with our cars attached to the back!

The MTP Train

Our group is housed in three privately owned rail cars that are hitched to the back of the Amtrak train.  The train cars are owned by LARail.com
Doug, one of the owners of the rail cars gives us a safety briefing from the dome car.
