Amtrak service between Kansas City and St. Louis will get back to normal Sunday in the wake of flood-related disruptions that began on the line Wednesday.
Christina Leeds, a spokeswoman for the nation’s passenger rail service, issued a statement Saturday noting that the River Runner trains — twice-daily service across Missouri — will resume their scheduled operations Sunday.
Amtrak had been busing passengers between Jefferson City and St. Louis and skipping service at Hermann and Washington.
The Amtrak route shares a line used by Union Pacific for freight traffic, which also was disrupted by flooding along the Missouri River.
Never miss a local story.
The Omaha, Neb.-based Union Pacific said Wednesday that 70 trains in the St. Louis area had been held or rerouted because of high water.
Passengers on the Chicago-to-New Orleans train also have been affected by high water in southern Illinois, with Amtrak taking riders on that route between Carbondale and Memphis, Tenn.
