About Us

Welcome to the website for and about the Empire Builder passenger train! The Empire Builder operates daily between Chicago and Portland and Seattle across America's Northern Tier via Minneapolis/St. Paul, Grand Forks, Glacier National Park, and Spokane, providing a valued service to online communities (many with few transportation options) with a deep, rich history going back to 1929.

The train was named after "The Empire Builder" James Jerome Hill, whose railways were a prime factor in the settlement in much of the Northern Tier of states. This website will allow you to learn about the train, how to use the train, why the train is important, and how you can support the continued operation of the train.Welcome to the website for and about the Empire Builder passenger train!
