Taking the train Vancouver to Seattle

Jump to last reply

I'm in the final stages of planning a holiday in North America and was hoping to take the train from Vancouver to Seattle. On checking the Amtrak schedule, it appears that there are only two trains - one at 6.30 am, and the other late in the afternoon which arrives in Seattle at 10 pm. Amtrak use buses during the day. So which do we do? Take the late train, and be wandering around Seattle in the dark to find our hotel plus part of the trip would be after sunset so we wouldn't be seeing the views, or go by bus (not my favourite choice). I'm assuming VIA don't run a train on this route as I can't find anything on their website.
I've also been told that, as a visitor to North America, I can't buy tickets on the Amtrak website but need to go through a agent in my country.
Any information would be appreciated.
