Minot The Magic City. Former Northern Pacific Railway Budd built dome/coach 549 (WEBX 801045) and former Northern Pacific Railway Budd built Pullman dome/sleeper 313 (WEBX 801044) held the markers on Amtrak Train 7 (Empire Builder) on Saturday, August 2, 2021. The Gassman Coulee Trestle in Minot, North Dakota is 1,792 feet long and 117 feet above ground level at its tallest point. This span served the Great Northern Railway (today owned by BNSF), which was a major factor in the overnight development of Minot from a small town into a major city in the area, and thus the nickname "Magic City". The Webb Rail cars would continue through Spokane, Washington on Amtrak Train 27, and arrive in Portland, Oregon about 25 hours later.
