Dec 80
The Canadian (1-2), Super Continental (3-4) and the Amtrak Pacific International operated out of the station at that time.

It is fascinating to see a bilingual schedule board.

Nice coordination between Amtrak #794 and Via #2 and #4, Who are the clowns who do the scheduling for Amtrak???

I think the Amtrak Seattle-Vancouver trains were scheduled to connect with Amtrak's own trains at Seattle.  With only one train a day each way, there can't be a convenient connection to the VIA trains as well.

 I believe the were trading to connect Vancouver, BC to Seattle to have been able to connect with the Coast Starlight, which would have provided a connection for passengers all the way down the West Coast,. Could be wrong on that. Would have to go back and look at old timetables of course.
