Amtrak’s passenger train service has been routed temporarily through Wyoming, including the cities of Laramie, Rawlins and Rock Springs.

According to a spokesperson briefly interviewed by the KOWB news center, the re-routing of Amtrak’s Zephyr train, is a result of a track being washed out near Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

The Zephyr runs daily between Chicago and San Francisco.

Marc Magliari says that the train will be making no stops in Wyoming, but Wyomingites might be seeing the passenger train running through the southern part of the state.
