From St. Croix to St. Paul is a paired track with BNSF, whose predecessor Burlington Route line opened in 1886. Between St. Croix and Newport, BNSF owns the south track, which is closest to the Mississippi River. And between Newport and St. Paul, BNSF owns the north track. Each of the Twin Cities previously had major downtown stations. In 1978, Amtrak opened its modest Midway station, between the Twin Cities. But in 2014, Amtrak moved to the restored St. Paul Union Depot, using a new through platform.
