Hugging the Pacific Ocean on The Coast Starlight

Amtrak's Coast Starlight hugs the shore of the Pacific Ocean north of Santa Barbara, July 11, 2003. Shot from the end of the train.
I wasn't in the parlour car at the time. Actually, this train was running with two Sightseer lounges, since the parlour was being refurbished.

I was in one of the last cars of the train, likely the kiddy car, where children have their own playroom.

There are ways, you may know from travelling by train, to get good photos from that lower level doorway/ window combination area.
