Big Change on Pine Street by the Amtrak Depot in Paso Robles

As I was driving downtown to return some books at the Paso Robles Library yesterday, I accidently turned on 6th Street instead of 10th, and I took it to Pine so I could skip the stop signs on Park. When I got to Pine I almost thought I was in the wrong city. There was a "Do not enter" sign facing me before I turned left, and I saw that while I'd been sticking to Spring Street these past few weeks, someone built a new parking area along Pine between 6th and 7th Streets. That was quite a big change by the Amtrak Depot in Paso Robles. After I left the library, I returned to take some pictures.

I happened to arrive just after a northbound train had pulled in and was picking up  passengers. Notice the conductor taking tickets as people board. You can also see the trees reflected in the windows of the train. If you click on the photos they will enlarge so you can see them better.
