I've taken the Empire Builder from Seattle (maybe Portland? I don't remember, I was younger) before. I wouldn't recommend going both ways on the train (it's just a really, really ****ing long trip) but one-way is actually pretty nice. You just have to treat it as part of your trip and not just getting from Point A to Point B.
