I guess I had not expected to be (pleasantly) surprised by a train station in LA. However, I thought the old world style (Spanish ?) decor was interesting and well done with comfortable (tall) bench seats. The multicoloured tile designs, the hanging chandeliers an the iron work take ones imagination back to a different time.The logistics of the station are hard to figure out and not intuitive. We arrived by Flyaway Shuttle from LAX and found the Subway to deliver a passable lunch before our trip to San Diego. On the way back- after just two attempts - we were able to find the platform for the Red/Purple line of the subway - which quickly becomes an LRT (surface) line. The large mural (City of Dreams) in the east lobby is definitely worth a look.
