Coast Starlight Resumes Full West Coast Route

Chris Lehman

Amtrak says the Coast Starlight has resumed its full route between Seattle and Los Angeles.

The train was only running on a portion of its route for nearly two months as crews worked to repair damage to a trestle caused by a wildfire in northern California. For several weeks, Amtrak offered an overnight bus connection between Klamath Falls and Sacramento.

The Coast Starlight makes several stops in Oregon, including Albany and Eugene, as it travels between Washington and California.
