Riding the Coast Starlight South

Riding Amtrak’s Coast Starlight to Los Angeles from Seattle is a relaxing two day trip except for the urge to capture it all on video.

Departed Seattle, Monday morning at 9:30a, and arrived Los Angeles Tuesday evening at 8:46p — 15 minutes early!

Check out this website where true train fans are tracking the locations of these rare cars; gotta love them internets!
