Shopping? Sightseeing? A visit to the USS Midway? ...
The San Diego Express - To Be Announced

We've given you a few ideas ... maybe you'll come up with your own .. but please join us for a relaxing trip from Los Angeles (or any Orange County stop) to San Diego and back. With wonderful Southern California summer weather, do you really need a reason for an easy and special trip to Diego?

Our train will wind its way through the fascinating industrial backsides of LA and Orange County until we reach Santa Ana. There, we hit our first fast track - 90mph(!) until we screech into Irvine. At departure, we'll race out of the depot on our way to San Juan Capistrano. After leaving SJC, it's not much longer until we hit the coast for some wonderful scenic miles with the ocean right outside our picture windows ... the train skirts the inlets, sloughs and beautiful beaches of the mighty Pacific Ocean for miles. After Oceanside and our run through Camp Pendleton, we'll stop at Solana Beach and let some folks off for the race track ... and then off we go with our climb up Miramar Hill, the next scenic highlight. Soon, we'll skirt Mission Bay and arrive San Diego at the foot of Broadway Street ... only blocks from the embaradero.


During your trip, you'll enjoy:

Fantastic vista's from the large picture windows
Streamline moderne ambiance that won't quit
Camaraderie with like minded travelers
Snacks and beverages (including a selection of classic cocktails)


Fare: $98.00 per person

Be a hero in the office or the neighborhood, organize a small group of friends or co-workers for this wonderful day trip to Diego ... an exciting weekend alternative to the mundane! (If you sign up 10 people, you're OUR hero and you ride for free!)


Departure from Los Angeles is at 7:20 am (you may board at any regular Amtrak station along the route, call for times) with arrival at San Diego at 10:10 am.

While we journey home, (departure is at 6:20 pm) you'll enjoy dessert and beverage service while you savor the events of the day with your traveling companions ... arriving back in LA at 9:05 pm.
