From Amtrak's 1996 Travel Planner
It's Amtrak's most popular train -- and a three-way winner for your vacation travel.
First, the Coast Starlight connects the most popular destinations on the West Coast: the great cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle; the sparkling beaches of Santa Barbara; the beautiful mountain country around Mt. Shasta and Klamath Falls; the magnificent natural beauty of Washington state.
Second, the Coast Starlight shows you stunningly beautiful vistas, from cool northern forests and the breath-taking heights of the Cascades to the verdant green of California's fertile valleys and the shoreline of the Pacific -- spectacular scenery you can't see any other way.
Third, the Coast Starlight does it all with a new standard of comfort and service -- exciting menus featuring the best of the flavorful West, wine tastings and specialty beers and ales, and enhanced services for sleeping car passengers.
All of which adds up to one easy choice: the Coast Starlight.
