Amtrak still disrupted by flood-damaged tracks

  • Updated: August 22, 2007 - 9:30 PM

Amtrak train service on the Empire Builder between Minneapolis and Chicago remained disrupted Wednesday and today because of Canadian Pacific Railroad track closures through flooded areas of southeastern Minnesota. About 28,800 travelers had made the trip on chartered buses since Sunday, according to Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari.

Passengers were being contacted with instructions, when possible. Since trains generally make better time than buses, Amtrak was addressing missed connections with chartered transportation or complimentary lodging in Chicago until the next connecting train.
