The train was 40 minutes late leaving Seattle but they explained why over the public address system, so we were not left wondering. Once we departed Seattle's King Street station, we were given some superb views of the upper reaches of Puget Sound, its many waterways and lakes, before settling in to mostly rolling countryside replete with cattle, waterfowl and the most superb views of entirely snow-capped Mt Rainier. The seats were very comfortable, the restrooms spotlessly clean, the available snack foods of high quality and moderate price, and the train - on the day we travelled - far from crowded. As Seniors (Amtrak allows for 62 years and older) we paid a total of $73.10 for two reserved coach seats. As with an airline, they took our luggage (maximum weight permitted: 50 pounds) and delivered it to the destination safely and well. It was a great experience overall, and you couldn't fault Amtrak's efficiency in processing both us and the queues wanting to board.
