My Trip On Amtrak
"Hi", my name is Grisel Burns. I'm here to tell you about a wonderful
train ride that I had. We left on April 17, 1996 and when we arrived at
the Los Angeles train station I was nervous and excited at the same
time. My family and I got on the sleeping Super Liner 2 and the car
attendand showed us where our room was and at that time we had the
family room. We walked in and put our stuff down and took some
pictures. Finally the train started to move and we were all excited
because it was the first time being on a train, except my dad. Then
there was a knock on the door and it was the car attendandt. He talked
to us about the train and told us where everything was. So we walked
around the train and it was beautiful. The people who worked there were
so kind. Then finally we arrived at San Louis Obispo, CA. We were
staying at The Apple Farm there and it was an excellent Inn. So clean
and beautiful. The next morning we got on the single level Amtrak
Amfleet car and we went to Santa Barbara.
When we arrived we went to out hotel to where we were staying. It was
the El Prado. It was a nice hotel too. So we looked around and bought
stuff here and there. The next morning we went to the Santa Barbara
Mission. We stopped to eat some LARGE hamburgers that were really
delicious. We finally had to go so we got back on the train and took the
brand new California Cars all the way to the city of Fullerton, CA and
let me tell you, if you want a vacation, take the train and just have a
My Trip On Amtrak
My family and I went on Amtrak on Ap[ril 17th, 18th, and 19th, 1996. We
got the family room in the sleeping car on the Super Liner 2. We looked
around the train and it was cool The train started to move. It was a
clean and nice train. It was perfect for a king and queen. The car
attendant came and told us what all the buttons were for in the room.
He told us where the shower was at. He said if we wanted to take a
shower we can go ahead. After, we went to go have some muffins and some
juice. When we passed Simi Valley, CA I saw a deer. Finally we reached
San Louis Obispo, California and some men from the hotel were there to
pick us up and take us to the hotel. It was called "The Apple Farm".
We got room 325. It was a nice hotel. The next day they drove us to
the train station. But this time we got on the single level Amtrak
Amfleet car. I saw two whales and lots of dolphins [off the coast of
the Pacific Ocean from the window of the train].
Finally we reached Santa Barbara. We took a shuttle bus to the hotel.
It was called El Prado. There was a swimming pool there. We put our
stuff away and then we went shopping. We went to the mall. We bought my
two sisters some presents. I bought myself a Tweety bird shirt and cap.
We went to a magic store and my sister bought some things there. Then
we left and we walked a few blocks. Then we came to a toy store. My
sister bought me a toy horse and she got herself some "Hello Kitty"
stuff. Then we went back to the hotel. My sister and I went swimming.
Then we watched television. The next morning we went to Mission Santa
Barbara. It was a nice place. Then we went to eat some giant
hamburgers. Then we went back to the hotel and we went swimming. Soon
it was time to go to the train station. We got on the brand new
California cars and this one had some big table. Then we were on our
way back. We got off At Fullerton, CA. Then we drove home.
