Avalanche Blocks Train Tracks Near Essex

Posted: Updated:
Essex -

While things seem a little warmer, our recent winter storm is continuing to affect travel in western Montana, with yet another avalanche that's blocking BNSF train tracks.

Maintenance crews spotted the avalanche at approximately 11:30 last night just east of Essex.

Amtrak says the railroad is now busing passengers around the avalanche. To do so, eastbound passengers are being bused from Spokane and Whitefish over to Shelby, while westbound passengers are being bused from Shelby to Whitefish.

We have no word yet, of when the blockage will be cleared.
