In a little less than a year I will be attending a conference in San Diego, departing from Kansas City. Having ridden the Southwest Chief many, many times (but never the Pacific Surfliner)...why would I want to go all the way into Los Angeles if the same train I would desire to take into San Diego comes right into Fullerton from Los Angeles? The booking system doesn't allow for me to book Kansas City to Fullerton to San Diego...it always takes me into LAX for the connection. I know that I can simply book each individual leg as a one way trip...which I will likely do...just curious as to why the system doesn't automatically connect thru Fullerton.
Connecting in Fullerton would really provide a nice cushion in case the SWC is running late. I plan to return the same way...thru Fullerton. Is there something I am not aware of? Thanks for any help or information shared.
