The buildings behind the train platforms have been mentioned for redevelopment. There was idle talk in the press about the A’s or Raiders building a stadium here. The new arena in Sacramento was thought to go here, but it ended up in downtown. So, I’m not sure what is planned for this spot.
I had the bright idea to visit my step brother and godson in Colorado Springs to watch the Raiders play the Broncos. We aren’t going to the game, but we will watch on tv. I priced flights to Denver and they were $700+. The flights straight to Colorado Springs were $300 more. I was disappointed and wasn’t going to go. In my feed one day was something about Amtrak. The California Zephyr goes from Sacramento to Denver. It was $440, which was still high. I made the reservations anyway. I had to change days for a funeral, and the Friday to Friday saved me $100 from the Wednesday to Wednesday trip I had originally planned on. So, I’m on the train as I post.
