union station. los angeles, ca. 1993. i was working a spec assignment on a cross country train trip on the now defunct sunset limited line that runs from orlando to l.a. what a great train ride! documenting the route within the time barriers of the trains schedule, i was dependent on the time spent at every station to get exactly what i needed. it was a great lesson in planning and being quick to accept what was available, day or night. it meant waking up at 2am, to shoot a small station in west texas, or running down the line to get the conductors changing shifts at 4am. unfortunately, the line is not in service anymore, after the hurricanes decimated the tracks through louisiana. i’m glad i was able to get on that train!
