I'll be in San Diego for a few days next month, think I have most things sorted, all apart from the leaving. I have to get up to LA to pick up a rental car. Amtrak do a great job of selling the scenic delights of the train, as opposed to the Greyhound which I suppose trundles up a freeway of some sort. But taking this bus is half the price of the train, so if the train doesn't give the coastal sites promised, I'd be a bit sad. Any views as to whether the train is worth it?
