Current schedules

Amtrak no longer specifically publishes schedules for individual routes. However, alternative schedule information is available here. As always, schedules are subject to change. The Empire Builder is an all reserved train, and as such, changes in the schedule will be noted when making reservations at the Amtrak website or with an Amtrak customer service representative. Amtrak will advise about schedule changes to existing reservations.
