Amtrak working to restore service

Some travelers are scrambling as a possible freight railroad strike interrupts service along Amtrak's long-distance routes.

With a tentative deal reached to prevent a freight railroad strike, Amtrak is working to get its schedule back in order.

"Amtrak is working to quickly restore canceled trains and reaching out to impacted customers to accommodate on first available departures," Amtrak said in a statement Thursday morning.
