Empire Builder Schedule Change Coming April 15th, 2014

Amtrak Empire BuilderI just found out that the Amtrak Empire Builder passenger train schedule is changing. Effective April 15, 2014. Train 8 will be going through Sandpoint 3 hours earlier (and scheduled at St. Paul at the same time as now, adding 3 hours to the schedule), and Train 7 will be going through Sandpoint 90 minutes later than the current schedule.

Simplified version below:
