The train was to leave the Flagstaff station at 8:30 pm. arrived with 20 minutes to spare.
we were informed that a train had derailed and when they got an update they would pass
it along. . . Around 9 pm. we were told that five buses were coming to take 250 people
to Needles California where the train would take us to our destinations.
Eleven Thirty pm, we move onto the bus, a women who's husband had brought her to the
train left, she came over to sit with me, she told me she felt frightened, putting my hand on
her's, "We're in this together, no worries" her smile warmed my heart.
3:30 am, we arrive in Needles, unloading bags, we get onto the train. I was able to sleep some.
There was kindness, sharing stories. Morning came all too quickly, going into the dinning car for
coffee, watching the world pass by. 11:30 arrived at Union Station Down Town Los Angeles.
Jo-e and Krista were there, I hadn't seen them for six months, Daughter Jo-e, (SunShine Girl)
lights up my world.
