Amtrak Coast Starlight
Successful & Unsuccessful
Attempts To Travel The Detour!
TrainWeb made three attempts to travel on the Amtrak Coast Starlight over the Feather River detour. When you consider
that travel in each direction (north and south) is another chance to travel over the detour, we had six chances at it.
Five of those chances didn't work out, but one did!
Travelogues were written and photos taken on all three round trips.

Are you interested in rail travel along some or all of this journey yourself?
There are very few travel agents that have the necessary knowledge and experience of rail travel to answer your questions
and to book a journey that you will remember for a lifetime. TrainWeb has sought out those travel agencies and rail
tourism companies that not only have the knowledge to book your travel, but have gained the required experience through
extensive rail travel themselves!
