Just got the email that our monthly trips "home" on the Empire Builder (Tomah to Chicago) are cancelled in Jan, Feb, and March. Dang! I have not seen any official postings or schedules on the cuts, but for the Empire Builder... it seems #7 out of Chicago is cancelled on Thursdays and Fridays. And the #8 into Chicago on Saturdays and Sundays is cancelled. Why would they not space out the cancellations and do them two days in a row? (Perhaps to get conductors home and not stuck in a hotel for two days is my only guess)... And too bad you can not come in for the weekend anymore. The reservation system is all screwed up still... FYI. It shows #8 cancelled, but #28 still available to book. Get your stuff together, Amtrak!! Guess we will be driving "home" more?

We have locked this thread because posts relating to current and future cancellations of the Empire Builder are more appropriate in the general cancellation thread. Please post comments relating to Empire Builder cancellations in that thread. Thank you.
