Planning a second LD trip and hoping you all might be able to help me with a few questions. We are going from San Diego to Kansas City. Have the tickets booked (roomette on the SWC) but considering making changes on the Surfliner if anyone advises strongly one way or another on my questions. Here goes: Santa Fe Depot is five minutes further away then Old Town station according to my mapping programs. We're going to have to Uber or Lyft a ride. Between 8ish and 5ish miles depending on my choice of stations. Right now we're on the 1:35 which gets us into LA an hour and a half before the SWC leaves. 1. Is anyone familiar enough with the stations and give me a recommendation about which station to depart from? I don't really care too much unless we get there early and want to wander or get a good cup of coffee (I am obsessed). Don't need to check bags, we're traveling fairly light. Although a place to leave bags if we got to the station several hours early if the place was worth the wander would be great. I will have a backpack, my adult kid will have a duffle and a backpack. 2. Any reason to be concerned with the 1 1/2 hour break in LA? Or a reason to build more time in LA? I know the Surfliner has a lot of trains during the day. BTW - you gave some great advice and stories responding a question asked about a year back. We took a great trip on the CZ. Enjoyed the scenery and the crew was super.
