NEW ORLEANS -- Amtrak says the City of New Orleans passenger train will pull into its namesake city on Sept. 11 -- the first time since Aug. 27, when service was suspended because of Hurricane Isaac.

It says daily service from Chicago will start and end in Memphis until then. Trains will start and end in New Orleans on Sept. 11, when service on the route in Mississippi also will resume.


Passengers who already had bought tickets for the suspended trains can get a refund or a voucher for future travel.

Amtrak's other routes to and from New Orleans are back in service. Those are the Sunset Limited, between New Orleans and Los Angeles, and the Crescent, between New Orleans and New York.
