Amtrak’s Coast Starlight glides along the shores of San Pablo Bay as it heads southbound north of Oakland, CA on June 4, 2002. This line was previously Southern Pacific’s Martinez subdivision (also knows as part of the Cal P line). In the distance is an Amtrak Capitol Corridor service heading eastbound in the push mode towards Martinez.
