Amtrak restores Chicago-St. Louis service

July 30, 2010 A section of Union Pacific track between Dwight and Joliet had been closed for days for undisclosed reasons, and this forced Amtrak riders to take buses for portions of the trip.

Also the Texas Eagle train, which runs between Chicago and Texas, had not been stopping between Chicago and St. Louis.

Amtrak tells ABC7 all of the trains are now running smoothly.
