Despite the fact that the weather was less than perfect, the train seemed to be drawing a good crowd. 

The station's parking lot is usually full, even on the weekends, but this weekend, people were parking wherever they could find a spot in the adjacent parking lots of the restaurant and antique mall.

Sightlines were good if you could convince the Amtrak officials to let you on the other platform.
