Amtrak Service Also Affected by CSX Derailment

Amtrak says two of its trains that travel between Pittsburgh and Washington are being affected by the CSX derailment over the weekend.

Amtrak said in a statement Monday that its Capitol Limited train, which runs daily between Washington and Chicago, won't run between Pittsburgh and the District of Columbia. Amtrak will be busing passengers to and from Pittsburgh to complete their journeys.

On a normal day, Amtrak has one Capitol Limited train that runs from Washington to Chicago and another that runs from Chicago to Washington. Amtrak's train 29 leaves Washington around 4 p.m. for Chicago and its train 30 leaves Chicago around 6:45 p.m. for the District of Columbia.

Amtrak says Monday's train 29 will begin in Pittsburgh, not Washington, and its train 30 will stop in Pittsburgh and not continue to Washington.
