From San Luis Obispo Amtrak station!

The classic San Luis Obispo station sports its Train Day banner on May 10, 2008.
Amtrak “Daylight” train set for 798/799 was at the platform for tours. This family enjoyed the day, among hundreds of others who came for the festivities.
Inside the station a visitor signs RailPAC’s “We Need More Trains” petition, as did visitors at other sites around the state. Train Day volunteer hostess Alice Bunker of SLO oversaw refreshments and handouts, with our thanks!
A display by the San Luis Model Rail Association attracted much attention, of course. Members Michael Mickens (center) and Stuart Young (left) were there to explain trains to new fans.
RailPAC member/photographer David Weisman explains what we are all about to a group of visitors.
