The Coast Starlight

The Coast Starlight is a passenger train operated by Amtrak on the West Coast of the United States. It runs 1,377 miles (2,216 km) from King Street Station in Seattle, Washington, to Union Station inLos Angeles, California. The train’s name was formed as a merging of two of Southern Pacific’s train names, the Coast Daylight and the Starlight. These were two of SP’s numerous Coast Line trains.                          Major station stops along the route between Seattle and Los Angeles are; Portland and Eugene, Oregon, and Sacramento, Emeryville (for San Francisco), Oakland, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, California, and Santa Barbara, California.

AMTRAK TOP SHOTS  This is a collection of around 1200 of the best images i have found of Amtrak trains and stations.. I have invited these photos from individual photographers on Flickr …. There are some fine Images  in here if you have time to look :With Thanks Loco Steve….

( I would like to point out that this is a personal project and has no affiliation with Amtrak or Flickr.Although .. I do Like Riding Amtrak Trains and spend lots of time on Flickr … The linked groups were all started and managed by myself and i have contributed to most of the groups myself with the exception of Amtrak Top Shots …..  I hope you all enjoy the photos .. The main reason for these pages is for people to have a visual image collection  –  where they can find where they took photos from ‘ If they have forgotten ‘ – Or to relive their trips – or to see where they might like to go and visit..  There may be more groups in the future but it has taken two years to get this together  )

Thanks to all the photographers that have posted photos for this site on Flickr –  Hope you enjoy the images ….. Steve
