Waiting for the Sunset Limited
We arrived in San Antonio at about 10 PM. Now, we had to wait for the Sunset Limited. Since there was no space available on the Texas Eagle coach car bound for Los Angeles, we had to wait in the San Antonio station waiting room. It is one of the most depressing railroad waiting rooms I have ever been in. It reminds me of a high school or community college lounge, replete with plastic-and-steel furniture and vending machines.
If my wife had been feeling well, this could have been fun, as the station is right near the entertainment district of San Antonio. We had plenty of time. The Sunset Limited does not leave until after 5 AM.
