So I am spending the day in Santa Fe. Now that in its own right is not so special really. But what makes it special is now I got here.

I took the NM Railrunner Express which just a few weeks ago finished and opened their new expansion into Santa Fe. I got luck and was able to get a seat for the 60 or so minute ride to the rail yards in SF.

It was a good ride, very nice and smooth. What makes the ride to SF even better is all the great views you can see from the train.

One downside is that it was packed. All the cars on our trains were 100% full, with people sitting on the stairs between the two levels of the cars. The main reason its so packed right now is that everyone is off work and/or school, and its new. So of course everyone has to ride the train.

Well, my lunch just showed up. Im at the Atomic Grill near The Plaza. Yum.

A couple of years ago I rode a private car trip from LA to Santa Fe. Amtrak dropped our cars off at Lamy and the local short line hauled us up to Santa Fe. A great trip.

Sweet. Our new commuter rail line just finished their extension into Santa Fe, so now we have direct rail access into Santa Fe from ABQ and lower south that does not have to go thru Lamy. The trip took just over an hour from the stop I got on in ABQ near my house to the plaza area in Santa Fe. Which, really is just as fast as I can drive it, and I did not have to pay for parking. Its really sweet.
