BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Flooding-related problems in North Dakota continue to disrupt Amtrak passenger rail service between Minnesota and the Pacific Northwest.

Amtrak on June 1 suspended the Empire Builder line between St. Paul, Minn., and Spokane, Wash., because of water-related track problems between Devils Lake and Rugby in northeast North Dakota. Amtrak says the line will remain closed through Monday with a couple of exceptions.

On Friday and Monday, a train will travel as far east as Whitefish, Mont., arriving there the next mornings with a train departing westbound to Spokane those evenings.
