Words cannot describe the beauty of the scenery along the Amtrak Cascades route from Seattle to Vancouver. We were on our way to Vancouver from Los Angeles for an Alaskan Cruise and the train was our choice of transportation.
The 4 hour trip from Seattle to Vancouver was gorgeous, the trains are sleek and modern, the conductors and attendants are informative, smart and very helpful.
I learned a lot of scenery and historic facts just by sitting near a family explaining things out the window, as well as from the conductor. The staff looked genuinely happy to be there.
The Bistro car (see my pictures) looked brand-spanking new. The decor and upholstery were modern, the doors between the cars opened automatically. The bathrooms were spotless!
I can't say enough good things about the Amtrak Cascades! Cost for 2 business class seats $170. ($127 plus $42 business class upgrade) for 2. :-)
Oh, and I just love the color scheme of cream, brown and dark green. Perfect for a scenic trip!
