Amtrak to cancel more long-distance trains Wednesday

- U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak will cancel trips on another seven long-distance routes Wednesday because of a potential freight rail strike as soon as Friday.

On Monday, Amtrak said it would begin suspending service on four routes Tuesday including the Southwest Chief route from Chicago to Los Angeles, Empire Builder route from Chicago to Seattle, California Zephyr route from Chicago to San Francisco, and the Los Angeles to San Antonio portion of the Texas Eagle route starting Tuesday.

Amtrak workers are involved in the labor dispute but Amtrak operates almost all of its 21,000 route miles outside the Northeast Corridor on track owned, maintained, and dispatched by freight railroads.
