@anankaf Cascades already has roll-on roll-off bicycle service.  It's a $5 extra.  Ask the ticketmaster at your local station for details.  Heck, it's about the only good thing 'bout living in Oregon or Washington...it's cheap and easy to go hit BC instead.

Don't bother with Portland.  There's nothing to do, the crime is high, the police are corrupt and inept, it's expensive, and the weather sucks about 80% of the time.  You will be mugged, your shit will get stolen, and you will not be able to file a report because it makes the crime stats move in a bad direction.

@peaches 218 No, just my parents set a good example on how to handle fussy kids.  It's not my fault yours raised you wrong, nor is it my fault you chose to have kids.  That's your problem, not the rest of the world's.

One tip that's missing would be to take fussy kids and meltdowns to a dressing room (or on the Cascades talgos, the telephone vestibule) until you can get the situation back under control.  The rest of us don't want to hear it.

That's not the good kind of bike rack, most people find them somewhere between farking obnoxious and completely unusable.  Please replace those with some staple racks that are actually usable by most bicycles.  Not everybody rides tiny road bikes.  Especially people who are going to be utility riding to a train station.  Basically, take some heavy pipe, bend it into a staple shape, set it in concrete.  Voila!  Two bicycle spaces!  Need more?  Install parallel 6 feet apart, at least 3 feet from any obstructions, in a row, similar to car parking spaces.  Optional:  Paint a six foot long stripe equidistant between staples, no less than three feet from either staple.  Basically, if you're not providing at least a 6' x 3' box with something solid to lock to centered on the middle of the length, justified on the outside edge, you're doing it wrong, and you're discouraging people from biking to the station and/or using the approved bicycle parking area.
