At last! Second Amtrak train between Vancouver & Seattle

It is finally going to happen beginning in August:

Go-ahead for new Seattle train

It looks like this will depart Seattle later in the day and then depart Vancouver in the morning, exact schedules unknown right now.

Hopefully the Seattle departure will be late enough to benefit those disembarking trying to get from Seattle to Vancouver. The current train is much, much too early.

As for leaving Vancouver in the morning ideally the timing will benefit those disembarking and trying to get to Seattle. If it's too early, though, it should still help those trying to get to Seattle to embark. Right now the train is far too late.

Either way, though, it might make day-tripping easier and it's nice to have another alternative.

I'll keep you posted!
