Photo: Cascading Along

The Amtrak Cascades is one of two trains that still runs into Vancouver's Pacific Central Station, the end of the transcontinental railway. It runs north-south from here to Eugene, Oregon via Portland and Seattle, tying Cascadia together. In order to get to Vancouver it needs to cross the Fraser River by way of the Westminster Bridge. I parked myself on the Pattullo Bridge yesterday to watch the Mt. Adams trainset pass by, the first northbound trip of the day. It's a fairly long train - considerably longer than any Via Rail trains I would see back in Toronto, and as time passes it will likely collect an ever-greater share of the traffic between Vancouver and Seattle.
