From Sacramento Valley

This view returns to the Sacramento Valley terminal area.  The series then continues with more downtown images, and then with scenes from along the other three RT light rail prongs.  The station was fairly newly in service at the time of this image.  Workers were still applying finishing touches.

In addition to the California Zephyr, the Amtrak facility hosts numerous daily "Capitol Corridor" trains to and from the Bay Area.  For many decades large rail shops occupied much land to the north of the train station, out of view to the right.  That area is scheduled for a huge redevelopment project that should add considerable vitality to this part of the city.
