STL-KC Trains Suspended Due to Flooding

Flooding has led Amtrak to suspect operation of the Missouri River Runner trains between St. Louis and Kansas City.

Passengers were being bused between the two cities although service between Kansas City and Jefferson City was expected to resume on New Year’s Day.

Not all of the scheduled stops for the River Runner are being served by the chartered buses, Amtrak said.

Union Pacific, which owns and operates the track used by the River Runners said that 70 trains in the St. Louis area are being held or rerouted due to the flooding.

UP lines are out of service due to high water between Jefferson City and St. Louis and between St. Louis and De Soto. In Illinois, UP lines are out of service between Mount Vernon and Percy, and between Springfield and Nelson.
