Things change in railroading - This trip has been rescheduled for Friday, January 27th, two days later, per the organization that has chartered the car to go across Canada. Please see the new post on T/O classifieds.
If you enjoy snow and winter weather, this trip will be for you! TIOGA PASS has been chartered to escort a trainload of very high value equipment across Canada. To get in position for this trip, TIOGA PASS will deadhead from Los Angeles to Seattle, leaving LA at 10:10am on Wednesday, January 25th on Amtrak's Coast Starlight for Seattle. The car will arrive in Seattle Thursday, January 26th, and lay over in Seattle until 445pm Saturday afternoon, when it will proceed East on Amtrak's Empire Builder, over Stevens Pass and Marias Pass to Shelby, Montana. Arriving Shelby at Noon on Sunday, January 29th, TIOGA PASS will be cut off the Empire Builder, and will proceed North on BNSF freight into Canada. Sorry, no guests allowed on the car while in freight service and in Canada.
On this deadhead trip, there will be room for 8 passengers to ride with us as far as Shelby. Each guest will have a private berth, and meals will be prepared by our on-board chef. Of course, as always, all beverages are included with your fare. The open platform will be yours to enjoy across three mountain passes in the dead of winter!
At Shelby, guests can detrain, and catch the Westbound Builder about 500pm the same day to return home, or move up aboard the regular Amtrak cars and continue on East to Minneapolis or Chicago. Fares for the Los Angeles to Shelby adventure? $1200 per person, including all meals, snacks, and beverages between Los Angeles and Shelby. Meals in Seattle while parked are not included but you may sleep in your Pullman berths aboard the private car in Seattle.
TIOGA PASS will return from Canada about March 1st at Shelby and will be open for guests to accompany on the return trip to Los Angeles via Portland. Questions: Call Norm at 760 953 9620 or E Mail at Aroncolc@aol.com
