Sunset Station Train Depot

Picture 310

I have been meaning to go get a shot of the Depot so I had a chance yesterday during the Spurs Casino Afternoon, a fan appreciation event. I don't gamble but there were door prizes in addition to photo opportunities so I took Sonia I. with me. While Amtrak does run through the Depot, as do other freight trains, it now has restaurant and event facilities. It's located next to the Alamodome so events attendees from there often park in this area and grab a bit before or after their events.


  1. So... did you win anything? Is that really good BBQ place just across the street from Sunset Station still there? It was great.

  2. Hey Sean, we won a bit of "money" together (it was mainly Sonia). But instead of money, you trade in the chips for a raffle ticket (something like one ticket per $500 you had). I won an autographed Bruce Bowen jersey. I love it. It could only have been better had I won the Tim Duncan jersey. I didn't see a BBQ place around there. Several hotels now, and a new condo building and Ruth's Chris.
