Schedule Changes to Amtrak Cascades Service 1/3-3/31

Union Pacific Railroad is going at it with Track Maintenance again, this means some changes to Cascades and Coast Starlight Service from Jan 3 thru March 31.

Trains 500, 506, 516, 501, 513, 507, & 509 have no changes.

Train 504 and 508 will not run.

Coast Starlight 11 will depart Seattle at 11:45a arrive Portland at 3:50p & 14 will depart Portland at 6:20p and arrive Seattle at 10:45p.

Train 508 is canceled, and replaced with 514, departing Portland at 5:15p arriving Seattle at 8:50p. Judging by the travel time, this train will still be Talgo Equipment.

This leaves a bigger gap in morning departures from Seattle, and delays one Portland departure by almost an hour. The Coast Starlight will run the entire route from Seattle to Los Angeles by train. Schedules revert back on April 1st 2011. The WSDOT Passenger Service Notice is here.
