(UNDATED) Northstar trains will not operate today (Friday).  

An early-morning freight derailment between Ramsey and Elk River has prevented the passage of all rail traffic through the corridor at this time.

Northstar customers are advised to drive or find other means of travel today. Limited replacement bus service will be available. However, buses do not have the capacity of Northstar trains and trips by bus will take significantly longer and will not run on a regular schedule.

Metro Transit is monitoring the situation closely with BNSF and updates about weekend Northstar service will be made Friday afternoon.
