Remarks & Notes 
On New Year's Day 2011, weather forced Amtrak to turn the westbound Empire Builder (#7) around near Fargo. To get the train back to Chicago, it was coupled onto the rear of #8. Here the combined train, consisting of 3 Genesis locomotives, a baggage car, 20 Superliners, another baggage car, and 3 more locomotives, approaches the depot in Staples for its first of four stops at that location.
