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 Empire Builder service will be maintained daily with trains between Chicago and St. Paul. Between Spokane and both Portland, Ore., and Seattle, trains and chartered motorcoaches will be provided as far as East Glacier Park, Mont.

The company says no other Amtrak service is available for these days in Minnesota, except Winona, Red Wing and St. Paul, and in North Dakota and Montana.
