Amtrak is installing the I-ETMS PTC on the active P-40's/P-42's, and testing on the Sounder transit Sub where that wreck happened.
The BNSF line has the PTC up and working,Unknown is if the WSDOT/ORDOT owned Chargers have factory installed I-ETMS gear.

A mudslide near White Rock British Columbia has affected the line the Cascades use to serve Vancouver.

I suppose if one really wanted to bother with a slow diversion you could re-route via Sumas?

Would it even be worthwhile to go the ex-NP via Sumas, rather than short-turn on the ex-GN at the border and get a Canadian coach bus?

If those are our standards it's hardly worthwhile to not turn the whole dang train into a coach bus, given travel time
