The local paper reports that there will, in fact, be a new $1 million Amtrak station to replace the laughable concrete slab which greets the Sunset’s arrivals and departures. That is the good news and it is very good indeed.
The bad news is that the site of the concrete slab will be the site of the new station. KCS says “no,” and it is their railroad. Yes, there is more to the argument, but with a two-year time-line, Amtrak is moving forward.
I asked the newspaper for permission to reprint a picture of the slab and the reporter is very professional, but I never got a reply from “on high.” Take my word, the situatino is beyond appalling.
And so it goes.
