Remarks & Notes 
Train 18, the North Coast Hiawatha leaves Seattle behind rare West Coast visitors, GE P30CH locomotives with a pair of SDP40Fs in tow. During this time Amtrak has experienced suspicious derailments at high speed with the SDP40Fs and railroads such as BN restricted their use. BN freight locos also were put into service on Amtrak trains during this period.
