Amtrak Train #14, The Coast Starlight, arriving at the Eugene depot, Winter, 1996

Winter Storm Memories

During the Winter storm of 1996, I drove carefully down to the Amtrak station to meet a friend. When the train arrived, it pulled onto the track closest to the depot, which had not had any previous trains on it since the snow had started. It made it look like the train was travelling on the snow instead of on rails!
