Amtrak on Track to Renovate the Depot

Amtrak sleeping car at Seattle King Street StationI attended a meeting today where Robert Eaton from Amtrak gave an excellent presentation detailing the renovation time line and what is planned for our historic Sandpoint Train Depot. More details to come as I hope to get an electronic version of his presentation so anyone can download the details. There will likely also be a Daily Bee article in the next day or so. Look for an excerpt to be posted here when the article is online.

Bottom line, they have chosen a local design firm to finalize the drawings/design/engineering and plan to have the final construction details put out for bid by middle of May with completion of the project late 2014. So it looks like come winter of 2014, there will be a heated waiting area for train passengers and a historic structure still standing!

Great news!!
