From Google Street View (name of station on sign has been pixelated):

And it is not 24 hours that this station gets in the news for someone homeless in the top !

I actually went to Google Maps and then posted the image here after reading the related thread on this forum. (The news articles only had the aerial view, and I was curious what the station looked like from the ground.)

Just making sure people are paying attention here on AU. :D

This thread has been dormant for a month and a half, so I figured I'd start it back up.

Don’t know this one. “ Fresh Choices “ has Pre-empted everything and shot other topics in the head!

I was a commuter railroad employee in NJ for many years until 2002, and have since been a tour guide at Grand Canyon National Park and Ketchikan, Alaska. Also, have been a National Park Volunteer at Hawaii Volcanoes and now Sunset Crater Volcano near my home. If not on Amtrak, also like long road trips, camping some of the time.

How do you add 'spoiler' text? I want to put a hint since this might be a pretty difficult one.

It is 10:30 PM with just a few passengers waiting, station is old, run down, everyone has luggage so a long distance station.  Martinsburg, WV ?

You've got a good eye, you're on the right track, and all of those details are correct. It's not WV, though.

Nope. Bear in mind that I took this pic this year. That might help anyone who can recall any trips I might have mentioned.

The 1 train 2 routes hint made it so easy.

Next station.

I figured that would make it a lot easier. But since there are still plenty of stops between LAX and SAS, I didn’t expect it to be that much easier. :wacko:

The one stop two routes, I immediately thought of 1/421 and 2/422, but was late getting back on my computer.
