Amtrak services throughout the Pacific Northwest will operate normally with some delays on Dec. 7, 2007.  Services were interrupted when the railroad was shut down on Dec. 3 due to extreme weather conditions in the region.

A section of Interstate I-5 in Washington State remains closed.

Passengers should anticipate delays of up to an hour or longer between Portland and Seattle. 
Trains operating between Seattle – Bellingham – Vancouver, BC may incur delays of up to 30 minutes.

According to Amtrak's website, Trains 510 and 517 will be canceled on Dec. 10 and passengers will be bused between Vancouver, BC; Bellingham; Mount Vernon; Everett; Edmonds and Seattle.

The temporary change is due to bridge work being performed by BNSF Railway.
