With LA going on a Curfew and Lockdown, I would think it's not a good time to be traveling to anywhere in California ( San Francisco is doing the same) till 2021 when its Safer and things are starting to return to normal.As a reason to explore Los Angeles Union Station (and of course a good excuse just to ride #3 and #4 between Kansas and the SW Chief end point) I've often thought of arriving at LAUS on #3 and returning on #4 the same day. Of course that's a 10-hour layover.
So I've wondered about booking a room at the Metro Plaza for a mid-day nap. If I did that, would a taxi ride be advisable instead of walking? I wasn't sure how pedestrian-friendly the neighborhood was or if vagrants were a problem in the area.
(Of course if much of LAUS is closed because of the pandemic this might not be the best time to 'do Los Angeles Union Station.')
And is this a dumb question or not? Would anyone know if in the heyday of the golden age of private passenger rail, did railroads maintain anything like nap rooms at their depots for passengers who were transferring between trains?
