It doesn't look that way....

Probably abandoned Williston when the oil boom ended....you can still get there by going back thru Fargo, or Whitefish for the JL-Amtrak connection...

However, the Jefferson Lines timetable shows them with new routes from MT and ID to Spokane. Anyone know if Amtrak might utilize those routes for Empire Builder connections?

JLs new routes, consist of what Greyhound abandoned...
If they werent Thruway connections previously, its not likely they will become so, but you never know...
