From Amtrak's 1997 Travel Planner

Photographs, travelogues, accommodations, and other information about train travel on the Amtrak Mount Adams Talgo route.

Pacific Northwest Corridor

Pacific Northwest Corridor trains make just about any northwestern travels easier. And while these trains can take you to innumerable exciting destinations, what you'll see while you're getting there may be even more exciting.

    HIGHLIGHTS:
  • Soaring peaks of Mt. Adams and Mt. Baker in the Cascades.
  • Mr. Ranier on clear days.
  • Shimmering waterfalls of Oregon City, south of Portland.
  • The lovely valley of the Willamette River.
  • The spectacular facade of Mt. Hood.
  • The shores of Puget Sound.

The Pacific Northwest Corridor is your ticket to all the sights of the great Northwest.

NOTHING BRINGS YOU THE BEAUTY and excitement of the great American Northwest like Amtrak® Pacific Northwest Corridor trains -- all the wonders of this fabulous region without any of the worries of driving. The Talgo trains you'll ride are smooth and comfortable... the service is frequent... the scenery is spectacularly beautiful... and tha destinations are delightful.

Start with the cities, each offering travelers breathtaking scenery and innumerable other reasons to visit: Portland, with its trendy shopping and transit network; the museums and attractions of Seattle, with Pioneer Square, Pike's Place Market, and the famous waterfront; and the cosmopolitan excitement of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Then there's water -- Pacific Northwest Corridor trains are never far from it. Whether it's the rocky shallows of the WIllamette River; or the magnificent sights of the Columbia River Gorge, a favorite haunt of sailors and sighseers; or the historic shores of the Puget Sound., Pacific Northwest Corridor trains take you there.

If your vacation dreams are bigger than one country, let Amtrak® take you to a second. The Mount Baker International can carry you comfortably between Seattle, Washington and the great natural beauty of British Columbia, Canada.

Portland, Oregon's Columbia River waterfront is always a lovely spot for a stroll, but during the city's famous Rose Festival it's transformed into a wonderfully exciting carnival of lights, food, fun and flowers.

Bring your bike along! Between Eugene, Portland and Seattle, the Pacific Northwest trains operate with bike rack equipped cars that let you load your bike without packing or crating it. It's perfect for exploring the beauty of the Northwest.

The natural beauty of the Mount Baker National Recreation Area is waiting for you.

The Mount Adams -- a state-of-the-art Talgo train -- rolls along Commencement Bay. It's a trip to write home about.

The northern end of the Pacific Northwest Corridor is Vancouver, British Columbia, a wonderfully cosmopolitan city with a decidedly international flair.

If you should miss Portland's Rose Festival, there's always the Skagi Tulip Festival in historic Mount Vernon, Washington, midway between Seattle and Vancouver, or the Daffodil Festival in Tacoma, Washington.

The easy route to travel in the great Northwest.
