I have a soft spot for the Winnipeg service, having ridden the daylight NP train long ago. However, there were more Canadian connections back then. When combined with lack of interest by North Dakota and likely border hassles it doesn't seem to be a serious possibility.As long as Minnesota pays for it, since somebody's got to if they want it to happen. I said North Dakota since it is the closest state and the last state any service to Winnipeg would pass through. Adjacent Washington provides the subsidy for the Cascades to Vancouver, and New York for the Maple Leaf and the Adirondack, so I just extended it to something similar.
Nice of Minnesota to let North Dakota be a free rider.
