Union Depot still waiting on 2nd train

St. Paul’s Union Depot on Wednesday night welcomed its first passenger train in more than 40 years. The second one? Well, it’s running a little late. Even later than the 70-minute delay from the first westbound train that pulled into the station Thursday night.

Amtrak is now guessing the 7:58 a.m. St. Paul arrival of Train 8 from Seattle to Chicago will now be more like, well … noon. Estimated.
