It is not as long as the one up from California, but anyone on the Train from Vancouver, Canada down to PAX on August 31st? (Morning train)

Stops in Vancouver (Canada), Bellingham, Stanwood, Everett.
It leaves Vancouver at 6:30am, and crosses the border by 7:30am, and to downtown Seattle by shortly after 11am.

Who else is riding the hype train from the Great White North? (Ru ku ku ku coo coo cooooooo)

    I'll be coming from Vancouver, not sure what method of transportation yet though.

  • z0raz0ra Registered User regular
    I'll be on that train!
    There's a group of us going :)

  • RoundtopRoundtop Pathfinder Vancouver, BCRegistered User regular
    Yeah! I'm sure it will be as simple as look for the geeky peoples. Maybe see if we can all get in the same train car, then take it over.

    Anyone doing the head down Friday AM route? I'll be getting on the Train in Bellingham.

  • valdorvaldor Registered User regular
    Does this train stop in Mt Vernon? I have been thinking of a way to get to Seattle and would be fun to get together with you all!

    Amtrak Cascades #513 stops at:

    Vancouver, BC (VAC) 6:30am
    Bellingham, WA (BEL) 8:30am
    Mount Vernon, WA (MVW) 9am
    Stanwood, WA (STN) 9:16am
    Everett, WA (EVR) 9:52am
    Edmonds, WA (EDM) 10:17am
    Seattle, WA (SEA) 10:55am

    So yes at Mt. Vernon, right across from the Sheriff's station (on the other side of the tracks).

    If you can bring me a cinnamon bun from the Callico Cupboard it would be SOOOO awesome. Love that shop.

    Note: Mt. Vernon and Stanwood do not have checked baggage handling, so you will have to lug it onboard.

    Got any good local breweries where you are coming from? I'll gladly trade you :), cinnamon bun for a bottle of beer?

    Straight to Seattle on the Clipper, yeah - cheaper than taking the car on BC Ferries. D: I'd love to do the train one year though.

    That sucks you can't do the train, but I understand the reasons. Enjoy the trip

  • RoundtopRoundtop Pathfinder Vancouver, BCRegistered User regular
    I will be posting the train car number once we have one at the station, and will try to meet up with people at Vancouver station before boarding/seat assignment.

    Note: I am aiming for arriving at the station around 5:30am or so (depends on how long it takes me to drive, park the Evo, and walk over), and will be equipped with many geek things to identify me by.

    Well, the cost of parking, in USD, adds up pretty quick.

  • RoundtopRoundtop Pathfinder Vancouver, BCRegistered User regular
    Alright, so thanks to a friend, I'll have a couple cool things on the train.

    I'm a demo agent for Catalyst Game Labs, and fresh from Gen-Con I have 2 newly released tabletop games with me:

    Master of Orion: Conquest - http://www.catalystgamelabs.com/2017/08/12/catalyst-to-release-master-of-orion-tabletop-games/

    and

    Dragonfire - dragonfirethegame.com/

    As well as Shadowrun Encounters (Came out last year) - catalystgamelabs.com/encounters-shadowrun/

  • RoundtopRoundtop Pathfinder Vancouver, BCRegistered User regular
    All right, tomorrow is the day! I'll see a bunch of you bright and early. I'll have a Mass Effect N7 backpack on, have a shaved head and goatee.

    Pax train northers, this is your 18 hour warning. You have been warned. Fun will commence in 18 hours.

    Coffee consumption is recommended prior to commencement. (And during, and after)

    That is all.
