    The only long distance passenger train is the Coast Starlight.The Amtrack Cascades that run from Eugene,Or to Vancouver,BC are short distance runs

    I believe there was a scenic upgrade to the BNSF Sub, which I also believe can be downloaded from the Library which so far has 660 downloads.

    it's a great route. the only thing that i really DON'T LIKE about it is the approx. 25 minute ride through the tunnel. very boring. they should have made it 5 minutes max............

    It's prototypical I'd say. Not a good habit to argue with Google Earth unless you're familiar with the area

    never doubted it being prototypical and wasn't arguing with google earth. i just didn't like staring at concrete walls for 25 minutes. for me personally, i don't need 25 minutes of prototypical boredom and wouldn't have been upset if that part had been shortened. oh well, to each his own.

    other than that, it was a great route and worth the $$$ for all you get with it......

    You know how to accelerate time, right?

    Add /timeacceleration to your launch link, then control-t and control-shift-t to speed up and slow down time. No need to hang out in tunnels if you don't want to.

    I have both routes;they are both excellent.You can always split into two an activity that goes from one end of Scenic sub to the other to eliminate the boredom.
