Amtrak Cancels Train Routes

Posted: Updated:

Amtrak has announced the cancellation of "Empire Builder" train routes between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Spokane. The westbound "Train 7" will not run Thursday, December 12 or Saturday, December 14. Service on the eastbound "Train 8" is suspended for Friday, December 13 and Sunday, December 15. 

An Amtrak spokesperson says there's too much congestion on the railroads. With the early blast of cold winter weather, the company says it doesn't have the equipment or the crews necessary to safely navigate through the traffic.

The Empire Builder has seven stops in North Dakota, including Minot and Williston. The route has four more stops in eastern Montana. Amtrak is allowing passengers with tickets for canceled trips to reschedule.
