Question by neverneverland: What train do I use to go from Southern California to San Francisco?
I already checked the AMTRAK website, and they are just as expensive as a plane ticket there and 4 times as long for travel time. Is there any other train I can take from LA or Orange County California to San Francisco besides Amtrak? If so, what is it called, and do they have a “trip planner” on their site? I have no clue why someone would want to take Amtrak for a trip that is just as expensive as a plane, and so much longer. I’m looking for a cheap alternative! Thanks.

Nope. No other train from Southern California to San Francisco. You could take a bus (blech) or try kayak.com to look for cheap flights.
