Pacific Parlour Car Columbia Valley 39970 Amtrak Coast Starlight

Amtrak retired their Pacific Parlour Cars this month – after 23 years in service on Coast Starlight route.

This is a combination of videos I took on my one and only Coast Starlight ride in 2015. I had most of my meals in Pacific Parlour Car.

Pacific Parlour Car was always busy – so it was difficult getting video that wouldn’t include other passengers.

I was traveling from Los Angeles Union Station to Seattle King Street Station. Then back to Chicago on Empire Builder. I rode Southwest Chief from Chicago to LA to catch Coast Starlight.
