Midwest Trains Cancelled Due to Winter Storm

Amtrak has canceled much of its Midwest corridor service and some long distance trains operating to and from Chicago on Wednesday and Thursday due to winter storm Landon.

In a service advisory, Amtrak said the cancellations were made “for the safety of our customers and employees.”

Cancellations for Wednesday include the City of New Orleans in both directions between Chicago and New Orleans; the Cardinal from New York to Chicago; the Capitol Limited from Washington to Chicago; the Heartland Flyer from Oklahoma City to Fort Worth; the Saluki from Carbondale, Illinois, to Chicago; the Illini from Chicago to Carbondale; Lincoln Service Nos. 305 and 307 between Chicago and St. Louis; Missouri River Runner No. 313 from St. Louis to Kansas City, Missouri; Pere Marquette No. 370 from Chicago to Grand Rapids, Michigan; and Wolverine Service Nos. 354 and 355 between Chicago and Pontiac, Michigan.

Cancelled on Thursday will be the Blue Water in both directions between Chicago and Port Huron, Michigan; the Cardinal from Chicago to New York; the Capitol Limited from Chicago to Washington; the Heartland Flyer from Fort Worth to Oklahoma City; the Saluki from Carbondale to Chicago; Lincoln Service Nos. 300 and 302 between Chicago and St. Louis; Missouri River Runner No. 314 from Kansas City to St. Louis; the Pere Marquette from Grand Rapids to Chicago; and all Wolverine Service trains between Chicago and Pontiac.

The Lake Shore Limited scheduled to depart Chicago today was already cancelled as part of the twice a week temporary service reductions Amtrak imposed in late January.
