A late running #11 crossing Castle Creek with Pacific Parlour Car Columbia Valley just south of Dunsmuir.

It is very sad that Amtrak cannot continue this part of the Starlight.
This turns the trip into a journey!
We love this feature of the Starlight.

Agreed. Now the Starlight is just another Greyhound on rails.

Ummmm, no. Can you get a bed on a greyhound? No. Can you get meals and snacks on a Greyhound en route? No, except at certain gas station stops. Is your seat as big on Greyhound? No. Amtrak is still well above Greyhound in comfort. The removal of the PPC hardly makes Amtrak comparable to Greyhound.

But moving from the PPC to the Sightseer Lounge is sure ONE BIG STEP towards the Greyhound atmosphere.

Give me a break, 14 and 11 had good ridership even before the PPCs came into being, come on guys you really are quick to throw in the towel!
