The midwest floods through Iowa have prompted Amtrak to suspend several trains, including the Chicago-to-Denver portion of the California Zephyr. 9News.com reports
Alternate transportation will be provided between Denver and points in Nebraska by chartered motorcoach. Ground transportation to or from Iowa is not being offered due to roadway flooding.
The California Zephyr traverses mainly BNSF trackage in the affected territory, holding to the original CB&Q route from Denver to Chicago. There is no prediction for when service through the midwest will resume. Service west of Denver to California remains as normal as it can be.
