The Amtrak station in Pomona, California, quietly standing as a monument to the heyday of long transcontinental rail travel.   This station services the Sunset Limited (running between Los Angeles and New Orleans) which passes through three times a week in each direction.  This was the most under utilized station in the Amtrak system in 2010, with an average of 4 passengers leaving or arriving per day.
