DAY 1 FRIDAY AUGUST 12: (L-D)

 

We meet in the main waiting room of Los Angeles Union Station, where a redcap will take our luggage and deliver it to the train. Our private car, the Colonial Crafts is on the rear of Amtrak's Coast Starlight, which will depart at 10:10 AM. At the railcar you are greeted by our Steward and assisted aboard. Enjoy a champagne toast or a mimosa as our train glides out of the depot and begins its journey to San Luis Obispo. Around noon the Steward rings the diner chimes and announces that the luncheon service will begin. The stunning views of the Pacific Ocean right outside our windows make the perfect companion to our meal. Tables are set with crisp starched linens and fine china and glassware reminiscent of the glory days of rail travel. Meals are prepared fresh on board by our chefs. Throughout the journey our bar featuring premium labels of beer, wines from the Central Coast, and spirits, is complimentary. After enjoying hors d'oeuvres, our train arrives in San Luis Obispo at 3:35 PM. Our charter motor coach will take us to Hearst Castle where the museum director will greet us and take us on a rare behind –the-scenes tour. After our tour we will enjoy a four course dinner in the delightful late of the Central Coast. We get a taste of what it must have been like to have been a guest of Mr. Hearst. After dinner a park bus will take us to the Cavalier Ocean Front Resort for check-in. Be sure to take a stroll along the beach and enjoy the warmth of the bonfires!
