Amtrak Cascades trains arriving at the Mount Vernon Washington train station between Seattle and Vancouver British Columbia. First is the south bound Cascades “Mt Hood” train on its way from South to Seattle Washington and Portland & Eugene OR. Then the North Bound Cascades train shows up and rolls into the station on its way to Vancouver.
The Amtrak Cascades trains carry more than 850,000+ passengers per year making it the most popular Amtrak route outside of the Northeast US corridor. The Amtrak trainsets were manufactured by a Spanish company and they tilt on turns allowing the train to travel at speeds up to 124 miles per hour. The current design and condition of some of the the tracks on this route currently limit the train’s speed to 79 miles per hour however, Amtrak is in the process of upgrading the tracks and when they are finished it is expected that the trains will operate up to 110 miles per hour.
This will help reduce the travel time between Seattle and Vancouver which is now about 4 hours.
