quiet clean, fastest way to blurr through customs (politely/ calmly cleared the whole train in 10 minutes). intriguing journey for landscape etc. was impressed and will take this again. booked online - very siimple. had to cancel return train to take ferry via victoria and it was so simple to do online, no arguments, no penaties i am still shaking my head. if that were via i would still be arguing and i'd probably not be refunded. and via still doesnt offer wifi - amtrak cascades offers respectable free wifi.
