Does anyone know which of the scheduled Amtrak Cascades trains (Seattle to/from Portland/Vancouver BC) are the newer Talgo 8 cars owned by Oregon DOT? They're so much brighter and more pleasant than the dingy, dark, and dated Talgo 6 cars with the leather seats that look like they're from That 70s Show.

My understanding (and experience) is that WSDOT and Amtrak own the older Talgo 6; I'm not sure whether ODOT exclusively runs Talgo 8 or not. The PDF schedule does not include train model info.

Thanks

Interestingly while walking past King Street today it looks like one of the two Talgo 6 sets have been removed from track 1. It’s been sitting there for almost a year so I wonder if it’s headed somewhere?
