All Aboard! Photoshoot on the Train to Oceanside & San Juan Capistrano

  • Dec 22, 2012 · 8:15 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

All Aboard! Let's do something fun and have a photoshoot on a train heading south to San Juan Capistrano or to the end of the line in Oceanside. Buy a Metrolink Weekend Pass for only $10 and it is good for Saturday AND Sunday trains. It is also good for the Metrorail and most local bus lines too!

UPDATE 12/11: At the moment we have 4 lovely models signed up but no MUA. If any MUA wishes to sign up, I think the photogs will be happy to reimburse you for your train ticket and admission to the SJC Mission.

It would be great to shoot with models or we can just shoot each other and enjoy the ride, the view and the company.

We should first go all the way to Oceanside and maybe hit a casino there for some casino shots for a fun location shoot. Grab some lunch at the casino and then we'd have to catch the 1:20 pm train north and get off at San Juan Capistrano at 1:52pm to shoot for about 4 hours visit to photograph the Mission and then from SJC we grab the last train north at 6:03 pm to head back home to the Union Station which arrives at 7:50pm.

This last train departs from Oceanside at 5:30pm and departs from SJC at 6:03pm.

If you have so much fun and wanna do it again, then Sunday, we can do the same thing except head North to Ventura! You already have paid for your weekend pass, so the ride is free!

So much fun for so little money...

Train departs at Saturday 8:55 am so you should plan to arrive at Union Station at 8:15am because late arrivers will miss the train and you need to allow time to find parking, buy the MetroLink Weekend Pass from the vending machine or the MetroLink Window , find the correct boarding area... if you are not familiar with Union Station, plan to get there even earlier, say 8am or earlier...

Discount Tickets 50% Off the Mission @ SJC

Metrolink Train Route

I'm actually returning from Vegas at 5:50am to Union Station and will go home to drop off my luggage and excess photo gear and scamper back by 8:30am. So please don't expect me to be much help as I'll be out of town from the 19th, but all the info necessary should be here if you read this writeup carefully.

There will be so much to see and do in this action packed day! I'd recommend we bring a sack lunch and a bottle of water, just in case. I found an interesting Lunch spot in SJC ~ El Adobe.

We can turn it into a food shoot... The restaurant and the Mission is literally a block away from the train station! So we will have plenty of time to eat and take pictures and tour the Mission. but the sack lunch is a fall back snack. After we get back to L.A. we could walk a few blocks (or drive is someone has a car nearby) and grab a nice inexpensive Chinese dinner and we can debrief and share our days adventure stories and images together.

Check with www.weather.com for a forecast and dress accordingly. Bring cash for meals and slot machines and mad money.

    Hi Darrell, my +1 is also a model/photographer, forgot to mention that. Partially because I didn't have her confirmed. Is it okay?

    Found out, you cannot buy the pass in advance. They become available for sale at the vending machine on Friday 7pm Until Sunday night. Cost is $10 and is valid the same hours mentioned. So that means you can ride the Metrolink, Metro and most local buses at no extra charge on the weekend.

    December 18, 2012

    • Neil W.

      Laura, I sent you a PM with my email and such.

      December 19, 2012

    • Laura S

      If I could only figure out where to find a PM Neil!

    Also found out... the Metrolink doesn't go to Ventura on weekends. On Sunday, if people are game... we could go to Riverside or somewhere East... Anyone game?

    December 19, 2012

    • Lany

      I would love to but not this Sunday since I have many relatives from everywhere coming to visit. Can we do this again in January? I really wanna go, but weekend before x'mas is hard to do... :-(

    Is anyone planning to drive to Union Station? If you are certain you will be attending and driving, wondering if I could stash some gear in your car for the day. text me at[masked]

  • Colleen T.

    I am changing RSVP to maybe. Its my son's 20th birthday and I think we are taking the family out somewhere nice, but pretty early so that he can go out afterward. I hate to miss this though.

    December 15, 2012

  • Irene P.

    How much is the ticket from union station to SJC I am interested but if the ticket is reasonable I can pay it. BTW I am interested to attend as a MUA.

    December 15, 2012

    • A former member
      A former member

      The ticket is good from Friday 7pm until Sunday Midnite and is good for all Metrolink trains, Metrorail and local buses. All for just $10.00.

      December 15, 2012

    • Irene P.

      Thanks! Yes sounds very reasonable and I will probably buy the SJC ticket on groupon.

      December 15, 2012

  • Irene P.

    Okay, so I will b going. Can I also invite another MUA?

  • henry n.

    can we buy weekend pass on the spot at the union station the same day morning before 8:15am? than go on board the train .

    December 5, 2012

    • A former member
      A former member

      Yes, there's a small vending machine that sells them. There might be others in the station. Next time I'm at U.S. I'll double check.

      December 6, 2012

    • A former member
      A former member

      Yes, but if you will be taking the Metro to get to U.S. you'll have to pay the fare to get there, so if you buy in advance, then that will save you a little bit of money.

    Shelbe and others... If you live south of Union Station, for example Shelbe is in Cerritos, you can take join us at the Buena Park Station instead of Union Station.

    Darrell this is a great idea... one thing I'm pretty sure Ocean's Eleven Casino won't let you shoot inside the casino.... Jut thought I should tell you.

    December 2, 2012

    • Laura S

      Casino? Theres a casino.?
