CHICAGO — Today’s Empire Builder departures from Chicago and Seattle have been cancelled, reflecting weather concerns across the Amtrak train’s northern route.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said the cancellations were a mutual decision by Amtrak and BNSF Railway, which hosts the train for the majority of its route.

Amtrak had previously modified schedules for many of the regional trains from the Chicago hub. Details on those changes, which continue through Thursday, are available here.
