Both San Jose (where I permanently live) and Santa Barbara (where I go to college) are served by Amtrak's Coast Starlight, which comes once a day in both directions. San Jose is additionally served by three commuter rail lines though: CalTrain (San Francisco-Gilroy), Amtrak's Capitol Corridor (San Jose-Sacramento), and the less frequent ACE (San Jose-Stockton). Santa Barbara is also served by Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner (San Luis Obispo-San Diego). The track in Santa Barbara is owned by Union Pacific, so occasionally you'll see a UP freight train pass by. If light rail counts, San Jose also has a light rail system called the VTA. Sounds like Denver. The California Zephyr passes through there. Recently, the city invested a ton on revitalizing LoDo and Denver Union Station and rapidly expanding the RTD. And that sounds like Tulsa. Tulsa used to have a train station, but due to the decline of passenger rail transport and the construction of the I-44 the Tulsa-Kansas City passenger line was dead in the 60s. The city was lucky enough to preserve its station; some other cities weren't so lucky and their train stations were either left in disrepair or torn down entirely. Most passenger railroad companies were killed to make way for the highways. Tulsa went highway-crazy like many other American cities and now their downtown is trapped in a mile-sized highway loop and filled with empty parking lots.
