Express train 599 is suppose to run from San Diego to Los Angeles in 2 hours and 28 minutes with 4 intermediate stops. The first Amtrak train out of San Diego the 763 is scheduled to get to Los Angeles in 2 hours 40 minutes with 7 intermediate stops. What is really pathetic is that back in 1978 the Amtrak schedule between San Diego and Los Angeles was 2 hours and 35 minutes with 5 intermediate stops. That was without push-pull equipment, well over a billion dollars in track improvements since 1978 or Surfliner cars with low-level loading and wide power operated doors for fast loading and unloading.
