I am riding the Amtrak today from Berkeley to Sacramento, CA then taking a bus to Tahoe. It was a little challenge getting up into to the train with my luggage because there was no step. You're holding your luggage and trying to get up into the train with no free hands to hold on to the rail. A scary second, but I made it =) and yay the have a power outlet. Woohoo! More pictures to come later.
