More room for bicycles coming on Amtrak Cascades

The Amtrak Cascades line, running between Eugene OR and Vancouver BC has spots for 6 bicycles on each train.  For $5 extra, you can roll your bike to the luggage car and they’ll hang it up on a hook for you.  In the summer, these spots sell out with some frequency in personal experience.  However, it looks like that will soon change.  This weekend, I noticed 4 new bike hangers installed on the train.  When I asked about it, the baggage handler said they aren’t being used yet, but soon they’ll be selling reservations for those extra spots too!  Thank you Amtrak and thank you bicyclists who are making the most of this resource.
