I remember Grand Forks as:

1) Where the local restaurant delivered freshly made box lunches to the NP Winnipeg train (ordered in advance through the conductor),
2) and where the Border Patrol woke us up on Amtrak's Train 27 before dawn to ask if we were U.S. citizens.

Nevertheless, I'm pleased to add this information to my impressions of Grand Forks.

GFK was my home station while I was in college. I used it many times and had many friends that used the train for transportation to and from their home towns. It's a small station on the edge of town since the line doesn't go through downtown.
