Amtrak Riverside Reservation Center
NARP Region 12 Meeting - March 20, 1999
Photos from the NARP (National Association of Rail Passengers) Region 12 Meeting held in
Riverside, California on Saturday, March 20, 1999. A number of attendees arrived by the
Saturday Metrolink train from Los Angeles to Riverside by way of San Bernardino. The
highlight of the meeting was a tour of the Amtrak Riverside 1-800-USA-RAIL Reservation Center.
That was followed by a meeting at The Old Spaghetti Factory in Riverside and then departure
back to Los Angeles from the Riverside Metrolink Station.
Since no trains leave from Fullerton, California early enough on Saturday to connect with
the Metrolink train from Los Angeles, Ray Burns and I had to drive to Riverside. After the
meeting, we visited the Mission Inn and took a few photographs at the Inn.
This page is a "sneak preview". If you were at the meeting and would like to submit a
write-up about the Amtrak Riverside Reservation Center or about the NARP meeting, I will
be more than happy to post it here and will provide credit. A description of the trip out or back
on Metrolink would also be welcome since Ray and I were not able to make that trip. Just
send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be leaving on Sunday evening, March 21, 1999, on a rail trip and won't be returning
until Monday morning, March 29, 1999. If I haven't received any e-mail about the above event
by then, I'll post additional information about the Amtrak Reservation Center and the names
of some of the people in the photos below. I didn't get a chance to take notes during the tour,
so if any of you had a chance to jot down some of the information provided by Amtrak or at
the NARP meeting, I'd greatly appreciate receiving a copy along with permission to post that
