Amtrak will continue to bus passengers from grand forks…devils lake…and rugby to minot to catch the west bound empire builder. Heavy freight traffic on the b-n-s-f tracks is forcing the commuter train to bypass the three cities in favor of a fargo to minot run.
Amtrak says they hope to return to a normal schedule as soon as possible but the busing plan for train seven-27 will be in place at least through the end of the month.
