I want to thank Dawn C. Chmielewski for her coverage of TrainWeb
(www.trainweb.com) in the
Connect section of the Sunday Orange County Register
on February 22, 1998. To help those of you that are visiting TrainWeb
for the first time, I've posted a brief outline of this web site below.
First, there is a minor correction to the article. The Amtrak Coast
Starlight leaves Los Angeles Union Station at 9:30 A.M. rather than
9:15 A.M. as published in the article. It is possible that Dawn obtained
the earlier time from one of my older travelogues when the Coast Starlight
may have left earlier.
TrainWeb is divided into 4 major sections:
The #1 place that you should bookmark at TrainWeb is the
