Amtrak using Pt. Defiance route

Don't know when the "detours" began but Starlight 11 left SEA one minute late and stopped at the old station in Tacoma about 11:06 and Pt. Defiance at 11:25.  How passengers are being handled in Tacoma is unknown.

I wonder how long this will last, that is until the wreck is cleaned up.

Is the Starlight being moved to the bypass route as well?  I had heard somewhere a while ago that it would stay on the old route.

They're using the old station.
