SEATTLE (AP) — Amtrak says winter weather is canceling or delaying service in the Northwest.

Amtrak had hoped to resume Amtrak Cascades service Monday between Eugene, Ore., and Vancouver, British Columbia, but canceled it because of infrastructure issues reported by Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

Amtrak says passengers on other routes should expect significant delays.

Passengers are urged to check train status by calling 800-USA-Rail or checking online.

Meanwhile, dozens of Greyhound bus passengers headed for Washington and Oregon were finding themselves stranded in the Salt Lake City terminal because of the weather.

Greyhound Lines Inc. spokeswoman Abby Wambaugh said people have been waiting up to three days at the terminal, located at Salt Lake City's Intermodal Hub, because of closures on Interstate 84 heading to the Northwest and other dangerous road conditions.

The terminals in Portland and Seattle were shut down Sunday morning. Greyhound has canceled bus routes in 15 states because of bad weather.

Wambaugh says the company has provided food vouchers.
