A very late Sunset Limited prepares to set out two cars for tomorrows Texas Eagle at the Sunset Station in San Antonio Texas. On the left is the Alamodome, where it was vainly hoped an NFL Team would find a home. It’s a hot day, and not a breeze could be felt as evidenced by the limp flag flying over the Sunset Station.

Just a few more minutes and Amtrak Train # 2 will have finished its chores and be headed toward Houston and New Orleans.
