Amtrak canceled its daily Coast Starlight service between Seattle and Los Angeles today through the end of next week due to severe mudslides over the tracks north of Chemult, Oregon.
The Union Pacific Railroad has suspended all rail traffic through the area. Amtrak's southbound service from Seattle to LA is canceled through Friday, Feb. 1. Northbound service is canceled through next Thursday. The disruptions could be extended, Amtrak said.
Amtrak is providing no alternate transportation, although it's possible to make connections between some cities via bus and other scheduled rail service.
For travel throughout the Pacific Northwest, passengers can take Amtrak Cascades service to and from Eugene, Ore. and Vancouver B.C. via Seattle. See www.amtrakcascades.com.
Passengers can take Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner trains between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo, then take a bus connection to the Capitol Corridor train service in San Jose for travel to Sacramento/Auburn and points in between. Amtrak offers a motor coach connection between Sacramento and Medford, Ore.
