Remarks & Notes 
Just 187 miles into its 1377-mile journey from Seattle WA to Los Angeles CA, Amtrak train 11, the southbound Coast Starlight, departs Portland, Oregon’s Union Station after a crew change. P42DCs 164 and 134 will shortly bring their 10-car train across the Willamette River on Portland’s double-deck steel drawbridge. Portland’s Union Station opened in 1896 (and was rebuilt in 1996). In pre-Amtrak days, this station served passenger trains from the Union Pacific, Southern Pacific and Burlington Northern (and predecessors Great Northern, Northern Pacific and Spokane Portland & Seattle before that). Today, besides Amtrak, the station serves the city’s MAX light rail line and Greyhound buses.
