Amtrak Reinstates Suspended Trains

Amtrak had reinstated by Saturday all trains that had been suspended in advance of a potential national railroad stoppage. Some suspended trains resumed running on Friday.

The suspensions primarily affected long-distance trains with some being suspended on the Tuesday before the potential Friday strike and/or lockout.

A work stoppage was averted when a tentative new labor agreement was reached early Thursday morning.

Among the trains affected was the Chicago-New York/Boston Lake Shore Limited, which did not depart on Thursday or Friday. The Chicago-Washington Capitol Limited had not yet been suspended at the time the tentative labor contract was reached.
