Part of the old station complex.

Two heritage buildings along the main street.

Heritage building across from the station.

These are some of the night time images that I tried to post earlier but didn't want to upload - they are from my 3 hour lay over in San Antonio - the train station is located in the old historic part of town not far from the Alamo and there is a historic district adjacent to the station- the Alamo Dome stadium is also next door. While the current station is just a box in the corner the old station is next door and is a combination of restaurants, bars, meeting rooms etc. This is a city I wish that the train could arrive earlier than 10PM. Also if I had been given correct info at the start of the layover I would have had plenty of time to go visit the Alamo which was only about a 15 minute walk from the station.

The dome in the background is similiar to the Husky tower in Calgary - it wasn't easy taking these night time shots - I did use my small tripod to help with the timing etc.

More later
