Jury reaches verdict in Colo. ski train dispute

DENVER (AP) - Jurors have reached a verdict in the lawsuit over a failed attempt to bring back the ski train from Denver to Winter Park.

The verdict was expected to be announced Thursday afternoon in federal court in Denver.

Iowa Pacific Holdings contends it lost more than $1 million when Amtrak broke a promise to supply a crew so it could revive the train in 2009.

Amtrak says Iowa Pacific never got the proper insurance coverage.

Iowa Pacific was trying to revive a service once offered by the Anschutz Corp., which had an agreement with track owner Union Pacific to run the train. Amtrak has rights to operate on Union Pacific's track.
