This sucks.

Well ...

I was scheduled to take Amtrak's Coast Starlight Friday next week from Seattle to San Jose.  Due to extensive bridge damage near Redding Coast Starlight service north of Sacramento is canceled through mid-May.

Update 16:30:
I just got off the phone with  Amtrak's customer service. Union Pacific had originally planned to have the bridge open for traffic next week, but it's now taking a little bit longer than planned. The reservation is now canceled. Maybe another opportunity will present itself in the future.

Update May 10:
As of this morning the Coast Starlight is back on schedule. Had I not canceled my reservation I would be boarding a long-distance train on Friday.
