Due to significant bridge damage, which occurred near Redding, CA, on April 25, 2017, service changes have been made to Coast Starlight that are expected to continue through mid-May.
Trains 11 and 14 will operate according to the normal schedule between Los Angeles and Sacramento only, and the Pacific Parlour Car will not be available. All train and Thruway bus connections to and from the Coast Starlight between Los Angeles and Sacramento will continue.
The Coast Starlight will not operate north of Sacramento to Seattle. Customers traveling between Seattle and Eugene can make reservations aboard our Amtrak Cascades trains. Coast Starlight customers traveling between Seattle and Eugene who are connecting to or from the Empire Builder in Seattle or Portland will be re-accommodated aboard the Amtrak Cascades.
Passengers ticketed for travel to or from Chico, Redding, Dunsmuir, CA or Klamath Falls and Chemult, OR, should contact 1-800-USA-RAIL for further information and options, as there is no service at these cities.
Beginning Saturday, April 29, 2017, and for the duration of this service disruption:
Union Pacific crews are working to make repairs and restore service. This information is current as of April 28, 2017, and will be updated as more details become available.
We appreciate your patronage and apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for traveling with Amtrak.
