That was a few months ago. If the Cardinal was operating with Superliners a few months ago, then I would be thrilled.


I have ridden Cascades #516 (SEA-STW), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-SLO), Southwest Chief #4 (LAX-CHI), Cardinal #50 (CHI-NYP), Northeast Regional #85 (NYP-WAS), Capitol Limited #30 (HFY-WAS), Coast Starlight #14 (LAX-PDX), and many Pacific Surfliners with Amtrak. I have seen, including the previous, California Zephyr #5 at SAC (with luck), what I guess to be Crescent #19 (at WAS) and Silver Meteor #97 (at WAS), and Empire Builder #28 at PDX. I have also ridden the Hokutosei in Japan, Ueno - Sapporo (now discontinued).

It did for a run or two. I think it was when a bridge was out, and when they resumed service there wasn't a Cardinal equipment set in CHI to resume service, so they used Superliners to WAS until the equipment situation sorted itself out. Maybe a year or so ago at this point.
