Oil Amtrak Trains-9 [Duplicate]

A perch that Steve Dahl, owner of the Perch Patrol, caught on Devils Lake, N.D., Saturday, Feb 8, 2014, lays on the frozen lake with a cluster of portable fish houses in the background. Fishing guide Dahl says ice fishing at Devils Lake in northeastern North Dakota is the best in two decades. But he says his guide service is suffering because of disruptions in train service to the region. Amtrak routes are being detoured in Grand Forks, Devils Lake and Rugby in part because BNSF Railway trains hauling freight and crude from the state's oil patch are displacing passenger train service.
