In February 2018, Amtrak retired the five Pacific Parlour cars that were used on the Coast Starlight. Due to the cars being over 60 years old and higher maintenance costs, Amtrak decided it was best to stop running these cars. On February 18 and 19, 2017, Amtrak's Southwest Chief hauled the last four cars in California to Indiana. One of the cars was already in Indiana. In this video, we say one last farewell to these beloved cars as they make their last trip on their home rails.

Here are some others who were able to see these cars on their last run:


Thank you all for 2000 subscribers! On Saturday, February 17, we chased GCRY's steam locomotive #4960 from Williams to the Grand Canyon. This was the steam engine's first run of 2018. Enjoy!

In April 2017 we chased the BNSF track geometry train around northwest Washington. Starting out at Burlington, the train comes off of the Sumas Sub and heads south on the Bellingham Sub before reversing direction and crossing the Skagit River bridge. Next, it's a reverse movement down the Anacortes Spur and across the Swinomish Channel drawbridge and returning to South Mount Vernon, where the train meets regular freight activity.

Consist is the BNSF 6505 leading business car 88, "Atchison", originally built in 1949 for the Santa Fe. Next is BNSF track measurement car 87, "Skagit River", originally a Southern Pacific bi-level coach built in 1955.
