I hope you meant SL train 2 as that is the one that departs Los Angeles.  The New Orleans departure is train 1 and departs at 9 AM.

Well, there is no SL-East, so why not have a SL-West leaving LAX to Hawaii?:giggle:
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!
