MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Amtrak will continue to suspend westbound rail service from Fargo on its Empire Builder line and passengers traveling on to Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Rugby will have to complete their journeys on buses.

The Minot Daily News (http://bit.ly/1DwXHbv ) reports the detour route will be reassessed before the holidays.

The service disruption is so that BNSF Railway Co. can make repairs to the line, which BNSF owns and Amtrak uses. The repairs were originally expected to last through Sept. 30.

Passengers traveling to Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Rugby will get off the train in Fargo and take a bus to their destination stations. Passengers heading west from the three affected cities will be taken to Minot, where they’ll board the westbound train.

Eastbound traffic will maintain its usual route.
